Thanks to all the wonderful blood donors who volunteered their time to make a life-saving blood donation at the recent Story City & Roland Community blood drive. A total of 23 people registered to donate blood and 22 units of blood were collected at this blood drive, helping to save over 60 lives of hospital patients!

Committed volunteers are key to maintaining the blood supply in our local community. Thank you for your time!
