Holiday blood drive held in Beatrice
The Red Cross Blood Mobile held it’s Holiday Blood Drive on Dec. 27. This blood drive was sponsored by the Red Cross and KWBE Radio. We fell a little short of our goal this drive, but with all of the illness and weather we are very happy with the amount that was given.
We want to thank all of the people that have been dedicated volunteers with helping through the year. To all of the people that come to work in the canteen, the registration desk, and the escorts. If you would like to help, please call one of the co-ordinators and we will gladly accept you into the group that comes to help us with the drives through out the year. Thanks to the businesses that donate the donuts and to the extension clubs that donate the cookies.
