May 7, Blood Drive Report from Rotary Unit #1503

by Jeanie Cozad

What a busy time spring is in this corner of the world….brandings, fencing, graduations, etc. We did not make our goal of 99 units of blood collected, but we did collect 84 units. There were several Gallon Certificates distributed. We did reach 5,500 units collected since January 2003. Our donor that helped us reach that milestone was Jessica McGinley. The generosity of this community continues to amaze me. Thank you!! The goal for May 7, blood drive was 99; we had 75 present to donate whole blood and eight present to donate for double reds. We ended up with 68 whole blood units, and eight double reds, for a total collection of 84 units of blood.
