Donna is finishing as Mike begins.
Condit Presbyterian Church held its first Blood drive on Friday, December 12, 2014, in the Fellowship Hall of the church.
The  goal of 17 pints was set by the Red Cross and surpassed when Condit donated 22 pints.  While many of the donors were from the church congregation, 13 others also signed up to donate in Condit.

and is waiting her turn.
Behind the scenes, the three Red cross employees worked from 11 to 1 to set up the stations and equipment.  Condit volunteers arranged the canteen where sandwiches and drinks were served to donors.

The same three Red Cross Staff worked from 1 to 7 to take medical histories then to make the blood draws. 
Grant donates for the first time
Church Junior Elder Grant Bartlett donated blood for the first time at this drive.  At 17, Grant is now eligible to donate.  “The worst part was having my finger pricked so they could check by iron,” commented Grant.
Many volunteers worked to make the drive successful.
