Blood drives run with support

Posted: Tuesday, March 07, 2006

The generous students and faculty at Kenai, Soldotna and Ninilchik high schools graciously hosted blood drives the week of Feb. 19. These community events were supported by the use of a van sponsored by numerous businesses and civic organizations from the Kenai Peninsula. One hundred twenty-nine people took time out of their busy schedules to donate blood. Thank you all.

Our very special thanks to our hard-working coordinators: Matt Fischer at Skyview High School, Kathy Herring and Adam DeMello at Kenai Central High School; and Jamie Leman at Ninilchik School. Each of these coordinators put all of the elements of a successful blood drive together. Thank you all, we couldn’t have done it without you.

The Aspen Hotel gave us a reduced room rate. Thank you. Our team members especially enjoyed the workout room and pool.

The Blood Bank of Alaska provides blood to 21 hospitals in Alaska, including Central Peninsula General Hospital. For more information on the Blood Bank of Alaska, you can reach our Web site at
