Houchin Community Blood Bank’s Community Wide Blood Drive came to an end this weekend, as local banks helped bring in donations.
During the drive, Houchin challenged different local financial banks to raise awareness about the need and importance of blood donation, calling it “Bankers Out For Blood.” Each bank encouraged their staff and members to donate on their behalf.
Kern Schools Federal Credit Union came in first place in the drive, with a final count of 161 donors.
Kern Federal Credit Union took second with 33 donors. Mission Bank rounds out the top three with 25 donors.
All in all, Houchin says 254 people donated blood last week to help the bank stock up for summer.
If you would life to donate, visit Houchin at one of its two locations, 11515 Bolthouse Drive and 5901 Truxtun Avenue.
