With local blood supply approaching almost crisis levels,WPER/Fredericksburg (Your ‘PER) hosted a multi-locational summer blood drive with Virginia Blood Services. Teams were dispatched to three locations. The goal set for the entire event was 57 units of blood, but God worked through ‘PER’s listeners to stun everyone, with 88 units of blood collected, 108 registrations, and 77 new people donating blood for the first time. After such a dramatic response more blood drives are being planned for January when blood donation levels tend to dip again.
