Tri-City Program Is In Jeopardy
Unless Long-Standing Deficit Is
Eliminated by ‘Operation Rescue’
On Tuesday, Fieldcresters will join
with other Tri-City citizens in support
of “Operation Rescue,” an all-out ef
fort to save the Tri-City Blood Pro
gram and insure its continuance for the
benefit of local people.
At least 250 blood donors are needed
when the Bloodmobile comes here for
a special visit to allow the community
an opportunity to make-up a long
standing deficit in the local Blood Pro
gram. The Bloodmobile will be at the
Rescue Squad building on the Spray-
Draper road from 11 a. m. until 5 p. m.
The Tri-City Blood Program is in
jeopardy because of a long-standing def
icit in blood collections in relation to
the amount of blood used for the bene
fit of local people. The community has
been officially notified that emergency
measures must be taken to increase the
blood donations if the program is to
continue to function locally.
For a long time, the usage of blood
for local patients has exceeded the
amount of blood donated in the Tri-
Cities. Blood is being used at an aver
age rate of 90 pints per month while
only about an average of 65 pints per
month are being donated. The current
deficit, representing the shortage only
in the fiscal year that began last July
1, stands at 224 pints.
Haven Newton, co-chairman of the
Blood Program, said a minimum of 250
pints must be donated at “Operation
Rescue’ in order to eliminate the defi
cit and to give the program a new start.
“If more of our people realized just
what the loss of the Blood Program
