Many business owners (Chamber Members) allowed their employees to leave their place of work to donate. A majority of the donors had not donated in decades. Chamber Members in the restaurant sector donated their delicious foods for the canteen at the blood drive; which the donors enjoyed greatly. The blood drive this week will again feature more delicious foods from Chamber Member restaurants and also FREE gifts to those who donate! The goal is to break the existing record of 96 lives saved!! The blood drive is Open to the Public and everyone is encouraged to register at www.redcrossblood.org with the Sponsor Code (Pachamber)
