The American Red Cross blood drive, held at Trigg County Hospital on Tuesday, June 16, didn’t result in as many donations as previous blood drives, a fact that a blood drive worker blamed on pouring rain that day.

Keandra Hawkins, a team supervisor with the American Red Cross, said people gave them about 20 donations through day, although they usually get about 30. The Red Cross is hoping to make the blood drives more common, Hawkins said.

After the blood is collected, it is sent to a blood center in Nashville to be analyzed, Hawkins said.
