Bloodmobile Collects 95 Pints At Draper
Only 95 pints of blood were collected
by the Bloodmobile when it was sta
tioned at First Methodist Church in
Draper Friday, December 27 on its final
1963 visit to the Tri-City area.
Blood Program officials expressed
disappointment in the small turnout of
donors and pointed to the rising usage
of blood by Tri-City patients. Blood is
being used by local people at the rate
of 192 pints every two months. Since
there is a blood collection once every
two months, the S5 pints donated
amounted to only about 50 per cent of
the actual usage.
Haven Newton, Blood Program co-
chairman, thanked those who donated
blood and the full staff of volunteer
workers who assisted. “While we were
disappointed in the results, we are
grateful to those donors who did come
out on a Friday during Christmas week,
which is generally considered an unfa
vorable time for a Bloodmobile visit,”
he said.
“However, the Tri-Cities have to face
the fact that there must be new, addi
tional donors if we are to collect a suf
ficient amount of blood for the needs of
our sick and injured. We have a number
oi faithful, regular donors, to whom the
community owes a debt of gratitude for
carrying the program thus far. But
there are not enough of these and we
must recruit new donors—persons who
have not been giving blood—if we are
to keep up with the usage of blood.
Mr. Newton said the next blood col-
