We had a lot of donors and even some double donations! The McCown twins Ashton and Ethan gave double which is taking the blood out of the body, taking the red cells, and giving back the fluids, plasma, and platelets. “I never did it before and said sure, might as well try it,” Ashton McCown said. Along with the twins was Ericka Kroeker and Drake Richtarik who also gave double. Thank you to everyone who donated blood today and thank you Nebraska Community Blood Bank for working all day and collecting the blood.
