Blood drive at WWAY draws strong support from community

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — WWAY, American Legion Post 68, and the American Red Cross teamed up for a blood drive last week, and the support from the community was beyond what we expected.

American Red Cross of the Cape Fear Area Executive Director James Javis says they collected 42 pints of blood. Their goal for the event was 28 pints, which means it was well above their target.

The drive was held at the WWAY Event Center on Feb. 4.

The American Red Cross is hosting another blood drive on February 12 at the Brunswick Surgery Center. To schedule an appointment, visit here.
