Red Cross Community Drive Collects 88 Units of Blood

Considering the beautiful weather and the opportunity given to local farmers to get into the fields, the American Red Cross community blood drive held on April 13th was a great success.

ďAlthough the total number of blood units collected was down this time, eighty-eight units were collected as compared to 103 units in the previous drive, there were again first-time donors added to the list and many who received pins for achieving some very noteworthy goals in giving,Ē said drive volunteer Dan Hite.

First-time donors were Aimee Dale, Stephen Good and O.J. Heckethorn. The following donors were recognized for reaching their respective donation goals: one-gallon pins were awarded to Ruth S. Horst, Eugene J. Piper and Karla Rainey. Three-gallon pins were awarded to Kathryn E. Meinhardt and Christopher S. VanHoozen. Bonny J. Hatfield and Janice H. Martin received their four-gallon pins while David H. Martin and Debbie K. Woods were awarded five-gallon pins. Pamela S. Mallett earned her seven-gallon pin, and Richard A. Middleton earned his ten-gallon pin. Topping the list were Lennie J. Doscher earning her fourteen-gallon pin and Larry Riney earning his sixteen-gallon pin. Individually, both donors have given more blood over their lifetime than is collected as an entire community in any given blood drive.

ďLetís be encouraged by their commitment, knowing that we can make a difference,Ē said Hite. ďCongratulations to all these who have reached their respective goals and to all first-time donors, may it be the beginning of a lifelong habit of giving to this life-saving cause.Ē

The blood drive was supported by the First Baptist Church with a generous supply of homemade cookies for the donors as well as Pizza Hut, which donated free pizzas to student donors. Scotland County Rotary Club provided sandwiches and Jís Food provided orange juice to all donors.

Hite also offered a very special thank you to all the local volunteers who serve to make the event possible and provide comfort and support to both the Red Cross workers and all who give. God Bless.
