The Red Cross Came to Holliston

by Paul Saulnier
January 22, 2018

Saturday, January 20, 2018. Saint Mary's chapter of the Knights of Columbus hosted the 11th annual blood drive in Father Haley Hall.

The drive was coordinated by KOC member Rod Burgett above. He explained that the process involves completing an application which lists places and drugs that would elimate an applicant from donating blood. Having the Flu will also disqualify you.

Knights were stationed in shifts at the registration table, (above, l to r, Ryland Hanstad and Tim Dayl) and the snack table, below (l to r, Henry Febo, Jeff Hastie, Tony Alexander). Guess which position fills in first.

During the peak hours of late morning, donors had to wait to be interviewed and then placed on a table. Ron states that approximately  53 pints of blood were donated to the Red Cross. Nice job Knights and Hollistonians.

Kaity Lawler, Account Executive, American Red Cross emailed the Knights:

"Thank you so much for hosting the Red Cross on Saturday!  You had a tremendous turnout with 70 donors signing in.  There were 15 deferrals, but we also had 7 power reds for a total of 62 units of blood.  This beat our goal and these donations can help save up to 186 lives during a time of urgent need!"
