Turnout for December blood drive surpasses goal

From staff reports
Many Evans Countians remembered that it’s the season for giving last week, donating blood during the American Red Cross December Blood Drive, held on Wednesday, December 10.
Organizers say the drive was a success. The goal was 37 donors but that goal was exceeded with a total of 45 pints donated and 48 people registered to give blood.
The December blood drive was sponsored by Job Training Unlimited.
All registered donors were entered in a $100 gift card drawing donated by Job Training. Paul Genest was the lucky recipient.
Another blood drive, the Freddie Geiger Memorial Blood Drive, will be held in conjunction with MLK celebrations next month on January 3 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the First African Missionary Baptist Church. A health fair will be held the same day.
