Condit Presbyterian Church’s April 15 American Red Cross blood drive exceeded its goal by three pints.
“Since many of the donors used the rapid-pass pre-health online questionnaire, the process was greatly streamlined,” drive coordinator Polly Horn said. “That reduced the wait to be processed. Since this was one of the best weather Fridays in a long time, some regulars forgot to show up, but walk-ins helped us exceed our goal.”
Horn said Jane Lahmon assembled a team of volunteers who provided hot chicken sandwiches and sloppy Joes with cookies and veggies in the canteen during the blood drive.
The church’s next blood drive will be from 1 to 6 p.m. Friday, June 17.
Additional drives are scheduled for Aug. 12, Oct. 21 and Dec. 16.
To arrange a scheduled time to donate, call Horn at 740-965-3582.
Condit Presbyterian is at 15102 Hartford Road, Sunbury.
