Houchin Blood Bank collected 50 pints of blood this Wednesday during our second blood drive this year. “This was a very successful drive” says Christina Scrivner, who heads up Houchin’s activities in east Kern County. Houchin set up 2 large air-conditioned buses right outside the Voyager Restaurant on the Mojave Air & Space Port. There were food and drinks, and very friendly nurses who are highly-trained and very good at taking your blood! Most donors were in and out in less than 30 minutes. Houchin plans to be back in December, and this time, we’re shooting for 100 pints! Contact Tenina at 661-824-2433 to donate or get involved.
