NVRC Fall Blood Drive A Success
- Written by Martin Mazur Martin Mazur
Thanks to everyone who came out last week for the NVRC Fall Blood Drive. With your generosity, we collected 19 units, surpassing our goal of 18! Donors enjoyed Pizza Mia pizza, peanut blossom cookies by Meira, movies and great conversation. Anyone who donated will be eligible to give again in early November. Be sure to put our Winter Blood Drive, set for Thursday, Jan. 19, on your calendar. Plan now to make your next donation with the NVRC!
Yes, there were winners *beyond* the presenting blood donors, volunteers, and those whose lives may be saved by those donations. Drawing prize winners are:
Elizabeth Hay – Run for Shelter 5K entry
Sarah Clements – NV Half Marathon entry
John Hook – mOUnTaiNBACK fleece
Jake Clements – mOUnTaiNBACK mug
Matthew Baran – Webster’s gift card
When can you give? As often as every 56 days: If you didn’t donate on 9/8, you can donate any day this fall up to Thanksgiving Day and be eligible to donate at the Jan. 19 NVRC drive. If you donated a regular unit on 9/8, you can give again between Nov. 3-24 and be eligible at the NVRC drive.
