Red Cross has reached 8,000 units of your blood!!!

“What a phenomenal experience!!” said American Red Cross Account Manager Amanda Koubek. “Getting to rub shoulders with such very generous individuals from our great community.....WOW! The things that have made a huge impact on me in dealing with the Blood Drives since 2013, is that you run into so many selfless people..... there are so many, from different walks of life, that help to make the Blood Drives a success.”

The blood drives were initiated by then Rotary president, Bob Stetter who said, “ The Valentine Rotary Club, through its blood drives is in the business of saving lives.”

Stetter recalled previous blood drives in Valentine when they were of a fairly small nature. “I decided that sponsoring blood drives would be a worthy project that could be ongoing, if successful. We, the board of directors, decided to sponsor a blood drive and go from there. I was named Blood Drive Coordinator, a position I held for 10 years before retiring in January, 2013.
