A local man, David Clark, recently reached a milestone during an American Red Cross blood drive at Liberty Regional Medical Center. Clark, a Century Link employee, earned his 22-gallon pin from the Red Cross.   
To receive a pin, donors must give 176 pints, which comes out to one pint every 56 days for 27 years.
Liberty Regional Blood Drive Coordinator Deborah Wells said, “David faithfully gives at all of our blood drives and encourages others to give as well. We really appreciate all that he does in helping to promote these lifesaving blood drives that are held at our local hospital.”  
There is a critical need for blood donors. All blood types are needed, but type O negative donors can make the difference between an adequate blood supply and a shortage. O negative is consistently in high demand because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations.
The next blood drive is from 1-6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24 in the Liberty Regional Medical Center classroom. For more information, call Wells at 369-9400, ext. 1037.
