March really was Red Cross Month in Imperial last week. With two Bloodmobiles on the calendar, donors were out in droves.
The Bloodmobile sponsored by Chase County Schools (CCS) obtained 94 units, the highest ever at that site. School Nurse Angie Paisley said there were also six deferrals, two short units and eight new donors.
The Bloodmobile at Imperial Bible Church collected 49 good units out of 54 donors, making the grand total for the week 141 units.
The Bloodmobiles were held in honor of Makenna Wallin, a 15-year old CCS student being treated in Denver for acute myeloid leukemia, which is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. She receives blood as part of her treatment.
Makenna is the daughter of Marilee and Jeff Wallin of Imperial.
Below are listed the donors at both Bloodmobiles:
