blood center

At our Blood Drive on Wednesday, August 3, twenty-three Qualifying Donors contributed 36 Units of Blood which doubled the totals from our January drive. This impressive result occurred because so many donors volunteered to do automated donations through the apheresis machines. A special thanks to the many Bryan & Aggieland Rotarians who took time to donate and especially to Charles Gilliland for coordinating the drive! Check out the video link and we hope you can join us in January 2012 at our next blood drive.
