During this time of the year, many are thinking about gift giving and present wrapping. However, one gift most people may never think of is the gift of life. On Wednesday, December 21, Arvest in Fayetteville, Ark. held a blood drive at their Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. branch for the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks. The blood drive was open to both Arvest associates and the public. By the end of the day, the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks and Arvest completed their donation goal for the blood drive.
Lora Witcher, donor recruiter for the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks, said, “Thank you so much for a very good blood drive. We were able to register in 19 donors and collected 17 donations! And remember, we were able to save 51 lives here in Northwest Arkansas! What an amazing Christmas gift!”
From Arvest in Fayetteville, thank you to the associates and customers who participated in this year’s successful blood drive.
