Adelyn's 1st Blood Drive: Thank You
Adelyn's 1st blood drive was a huge success! We were allotted 55 possible appointments with the amount of staff United Blood Services had available that day. We ended up having 60 people show up to donate blood! 9 of these were deferred during the interview process and one was not able to give a full donation as their blood stopped flowing midway through. Aside from that, we had 50 (49 whole blood, 1 power red) blood donations and the goal originally set for us was 30. We are truly grateful to everyone that showed up. We also had various food donations for the drive that are worth mentioning starting with a special thanks to Mary Ellen Tornesello of Chick-fil-A who made two deliveries as well as donated her blood, also special thanks to Ryan Haunschild of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria who hand delivered 4 large pizzas they donated to the event. Other food donations were made by Dunkin Donuts, Small Cakes and Zzeeks Pizza. We want to give a big thanks to the Desert Foothills United Methodist Church for allowing us to use their facility and a HUGE thank you to Denise Savoy of the Village Preschool who worked with the church to get everything set up, she was also there the entire day helping us out and also donated her blood. We definitely want to thank all 60 people who showed up to donate as well, it was remarkable.
