Welcome Wayne of Iola gives blood Wednesday afternoon at the American Red Cross Blood Drive, in partnership with Allen County Regional Hospital.

Wednesday’s donation pushed Wayne near the 12 gallon mark in lifetime donations.

Because of coronavirus visitor restrictions at the hospital, the blood drive was moved to the North Community Building.

The drive collected 57 units in its first day, exceeding the goal of 53 units. It continues through 2:30 p.m. today with a goal to collect 43 units.

Also pictured giving blood, in back, is Jim Specht of Piqua.
