Our first-ever blood drive is officially over, and we didn’t reach our original goal, but we are excited about all the pints we were able to contribute. 174 pints is a big deal! We’re really proud of everyone, especially our first-time donors.
We understand that many of you who wanted to give blood were unable to for a variety of reasons and that’s okay! Hopefully you know that we appreciate all the other ways you join us in loving our neighbors.
Here were some of our donor comments:
I would like to thank WH for lighting a fire in me as this week, I went to a site here in Portland to give blood. —Phil
I’ve learned something as little as donating blood can be the biggest change in someone’s life and for that I am now dedicated to donating blood. —Charles
I’m so ‘pumped’ to say that I donated blood for the first time last week!! Going back this week to donate platelets!! —Hilary
The last time I donated blood was 30ish years ago. My bad! I gave last week the “Power Red.” B negative, baby! They love me!! —Tom
I donated blood yesterday for the first time … You know the saying, “Bless someone and you’ll feel more blessed?” This was like that …I know I will donate again! —Jodi
Way to go, everyone! We hope you’ll consider “bleeding for the Kingdom” again sometime in the near future!
