2018 november blood drive results
"Neither rain, nor cold, nor anything else." kept our blood drive from being a success. Though the weather was terrible and upper respiratory problems kept six of our regular donors from being able to come to the drive, the church exceeded its goal. Final count, with "doubles" given by Max Agner and Terry Martin, and a "triple plasma" given by Tammy Leazer, our total was 38 units. Thirty nine people showed to donate and six were turned down for various reasons. The church is blessed to have eight members of our community come for the drive.
St. Paul's collects more blood for Community Blood Center of the Carolinas than any other site in Rowan County. Our total collection for the year is 107 units of whole blood, 23 double units of whole blood, and 3 units of plasma.
Thanks to Betty Monroe, Helen Gordon , and Patsy Everhart for helping with checking in donors and canteen, the "property brothers," who are so faithful setting up the Fellowship Hall for the blood drives, Ben Bernhardt for getting signs out and up at the ends of St. Paul's Church Road, and Perry Bernhardt and his crew (Lindsey Lowman, Alan Powlas, Rick Murphy) who put the Fellowship Hall back in order. Thanks especially to all who showed up to donate.
Please mark your calendar for the first blood in 2019 which is Monday, February 11th, from 2:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
