Last Thursday’s Bloodmobile in Imperial fell a little short of its goal, but considering the time of year and a late wheat harvest, the local coordinator was pleased.
Imperial Coordinator Karen Hayes noted included in the 77 who came in to donate, five were first time donors.
Also, she was happy to present a six gallon pin to Stan Cross of Lamar. With eight units per gallon, that equates to 48 blood donations from Cross.
His was the largest lifetime total recognized at the July 16 Bloodmobile at the Zion Lutheran Church.
Seventy-two good units were actually collected last Thursday, after five potential donors were deferred for various reasons.
Hayes said the later wheat harvest that was going strong last week and traditionally lower numbers during the summer contributed to the fact Imperial didn’t meet their original goal of 85.
Bloodmobile staff had urged Hayes to attempt to go over that goal.
Here are those who came into donate blood last week and released their names for publication.
