For the past 27 years, a special two-day blood drive has been held here in the Green Bay community to meet the patient needs before the 4th of July holiday. This year, Super Donor Days was held on Tuesday, July 2 and Wednesday, July 3 at Shopko Hall.
Our goal this year was to collect 425 pints in two days, and we had more than 400 presenting donors with a grand total collection of 398 pints. Although we fell slightly short of our goal for this event, over 1,190 patient lives may be saved! These donations will make a significant difference during the difficult summer months of blood collection.
Thank you to all of our donors, sponsors and volunteers for another successful year of the Super Donor Days blood drive! More than 90 volunteers helped make this event possible and we could not have done this without the support from our cheerful, friendly and dedicated do-gooders.
