Linton School holds blood drive

Blood drive coordinator Jackie Wald and the Linton High School have sponsored a successful first-time blood drive.

The drive held in Linton on May 3 saw 39 people volunteer to donate blood and 30 were able to give. Eleven people gave blood on the automated 2RBC machine which collects two units of red blood cells during the donation, so a total of 41 products were collected. Twenty of the donors gave blood for the first time.

The availability of blood is dependent on the success of blood drives held in many communities. The citizens of the Linton area can be assured that their community is a good example of a well-run blood program.

The staff of United Blood Services, on behalf of the patients who receive blood, wish to thank all who volunteered to donate blood and who helped organize the drive.
