Last Thursday’s Red Cross Bloodmobile proved to be a success, despite falling short of its goal.
Coordinator Karen Hayes said among the 61 people who came into donate blood, six were first-time donors. And, there were only two deferrals as 59 good units were received and transported back to North Platte. Last Thursday’s goal was 80 units.
It was also a fairly good collection considering there was another bloodmobile at Chase County Schools just eight days earlier.
It takes a lot of volunteers to make a bloodmobile happen, Hayes noted.
Food is a big part of that. Sandwiches, cookies, as well as canteen workers were provided by FCE, VFW Auxiliary, Enders Church of the Brethren and Pizza Hut.
Moving tables and chairs and unloading/loading equipment was provided by the Lutheran high school youth group, employees of Crop Production Services, Imperial Volunteer Fire Dept. members and officers with the Imperial police and Chase County sheriff’s departments.
