A four-step process is all it takes to save up to three lives—registration, medical history and mini physical, donation and refreshments. On Monday, 63 individuals participated in this process at the Young Farmers and First Christian Church blood drive.
Jim Sullivan says he always tries to participate in the blood drives. "I can't even keep track of how many times I've given," said Sullivan. "I just like it here. They treat you good."
The American Red Cross was in the First Christian Church gym from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. taking donations and come back every eight weeks.
The Young Farmers participate every January. They prepared sandwiches, chicken noodle soup
and fresh baked cookies for those who donated. And if I may say so myself, the donation was worth the cookie.
