Blood Drive at Valley Christian Church
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -On Monday, Valley Christian Church members and volunteers came together to host a Red Cross blood drive.
“Compared to other blood donation drives we have hosted, this drive has been extremely successful,” said Nancy Newman, Valley Christian Church blood drive coordinator. “People have really stepped up and been willing to come and donate especially knowing that there were lots of patients in hospitals who needed blood products.”
The Valley Christian Church has been hosting the blood drive for roughly eight years. Each drive has surpassed their goal and expectations. With the pandemic going on, they hope they will continue going over the goal with their blood drives even after emergent need subsides.
If you cannot get to a blood drive during the week, give the red cross a call.
