At the First Christian Church, the American Red Cross had their best blood drive in Salem, according to Joe Conder.
The goal was 75 units and 88 good units were collected, making this a huge success. The Red Cross obtained 117 percent of their goal.
“I’m continually impressed with the people of Salem and Washington County,” said Concer.
More than 100 people came to the blood drive.
EACH UNIT HELPS SAVE 3 LIVES; THUS 264 LIVES WERE HELPED.
