Red Cross Blood Drive

Yesterday we held another Relief Society sponsored blood drive at the church.  Compared to our drive in March, I was surprised at how slow things were.  While I was giving blood, I asked the nurse about donor traffic.  She said the day before they were at a location where only three people donated blood the whole day.  It takes a lot more than three people to set up a blood drive.  She said that although our drive was slow, we ended up with over 30 donors, which means the Red Cross did not take a loss.  She said summer months are slow everywhere.  If you're able, Give blood this summer!
