An increase in blood drive donations was seen last year in the Knox community.
Trish Cochran, donor recruit representative for the American Red Cross, appreciates the support of the community blood program and all of the donations will go a long way toward replenishing blood supplies and saving lives.
A 22 percent increase in collections was realized at the Knox blood drives. WKVI was the the host of a few blood drives last year.
More blood drives are scheduled throughout the season. Listen to WKVI for dates and locations for those blood drives.
