6 Blood Drives Scheduled for Condit in 2023

Condit Saves Over 2,964 Lives
Condit Blood Drives have saved over 2964 lives since it began in December 2014 as part of the New Beginnings Program for Condit Presbyterian Church.  We have saved 1,000 lives every 3 years. 
During the December 19 2017, blood drive, American Red Cross collected the 334th pint of blood which means Condit has helped save over 1,000 lives with its donations to date. Deanna Osborne was the 15th donor of the day and won the prize for her donation. Deanna used to give blood at her workplace but now she is working from home and donates at Condit. When the October blood drive ended at 6 p.m. on the 13th, a possible 1014 lives will be saved from Condit donors.
“Blood Drives are one way a small church can help save people’s lives,” commented the pastor of Condit Presbyterian Church. Condit hosts 6 blood drives a year in the Fellowship Hall as one of their missions.
Unfortunately only 8% of the eligible donors give blood.  This means the Red Cross is getting less blood than is needed. 
People return to give blood at Condit because we treat our donors as guests in our home and look forward to seeing them in 2 months.

His Blood May Have
          Saved 300 Lives
Dave Orndorf gave his 100th  pint of blood at the Condit Drive on August 14 to earn a Century Club T-Shirt from the American Red Cross.  
After years of giving his special blood which was needed for babies, Dave had some  health issues which put him on a blood thinner so he was unable to donate.  “It felt good to give the 100th,” noted Orndorf.
Polly Horn, coordinator of the Condit Blood Drives, presented the T-Shirt to Dave.  “I’ll wear it proudly,” he responded.
