Chino Valley Review


In Arizona, 78 additional hospitalized patients who need blood will get it thanks to the 26 donors who gave at a blood drive in Chino Valley July 15.

The Chino Valley Elks and the Chino Valley High School Student Council hosted the drive in the parking lot at the Chino Valley Walgreens, and United Blood Services out of Flagstaff, conducted the donations inside its donation bus.

Carina Fors, United's Senior Donor Recritment Representative, said it takes 500 donations each day to meet the blood needs of hospitalized patients in Arizona. Blood donations are separated into the components that patients need.

Donor Rob Johan, who is a substitute math teacher at Chino Valley High School, was lying in a cot across the bus from one of his former students, recent CVHS graduate, Jessie Shelley.

"She's a smart math student," Johan said while the two lie hooked up to the blood donation tubes and bag.

Norma Bauer drove out to Chino Valley from Prescott to give blood because it was the only local blood drive at the time, she said.

Fors said she hopes to see at least three blood drives scheduled each year in Chino Valley, and added that the Elks and student council are helpful partners with United.
