Fallon County residents came out in droves to donate their blood to the United Blood Drive held Jan. 20 at the Senior Citizen building in Baker.

Ella Arnell, local coordinator for the area draw, stated, “Our goal was achieved with the 35 units of blood that was donated that day.”
A perk that is offered for all persons donating “the gift of life” blood is a free total cholesterol test which is processed on a sample of the donor’s blood. This is confidential and results are later available online. The participant can use an assigned ID number to check their results.
Another incentive is a door prize given to a lucky winner. The Willard Homemakers Club donated a Willard Homemaker Cookbook this session. The happy winner was Renee Standard.
Refreshments were supplied by the Bank of Baker and Eastern Star.
