Nolanville— June 9, 2022– The City of Nolanville offers its gratitude and thanks to the many residents that attended their recent blood drive at the Central Bell County Fire station.
Saturday’s drive, which was larger than similar Blood Drive events held by the city, had double the number of donors than usual in the six-hour event window.
Residents could make an appointment ahead of time to avoid the wait, but walk-in donations were also accepted.
Blood donation helps patients undergoing treatments for cancer, anemia, and bleeding disorders. It supports crises such as the recent tragedies in Uvalde, Philadelphia & Chattanooga.
Nolanville resident and event organizer Marlene Fey was thrilled at the above-average turnout and was happy to do her part by donating blood.
“Every 2 seconds, someone in the US needs blood, and one donation alone can potentially save three lives,” said Fey. “Many may choose to donate blood for different reasons; for me, it’s something I can do to give back.”
Saturday’s event marked the first of four blood drives scheduled for the City of Nolanville this year. The next blood drive is planned for August 6 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Residents are reminded that they don’t have to wait for our next event to give the gift of life and can schedule times to donate sooner by searching for and scheduling an appointment at other mobile blood drives.
