“Reaching a milestone like this is extremely important to the steady supply of blood to the Rock Rapids community,” states Rita Nelson, Community Blood Bank. “The need for blood is very consistent and those needs are only met by the dedication of volunteers coming forward and rolling up their sleeves. The donation of 2000 units has impacted up to 6,000 patients lives over the many years the bloodmobile has been visiting the high school. We are extremely grateful for the impact the school continues to make in the local blood supply and patients lives.”
