Eloy Blood Drive a Success

Eloy Composite Squadron hosted its first Red Cross blood drive today at Eloy Jr. High School. A total of 27 units of blood were donated, seven above today’s goal of 20.

Cadet Lt. Col. Jacob Kottraba and Cadet Master Sgt. Michael Rodriguez from Eloy Composite Squadron directed donors to the Eloy Jr. High gym where the American Red Cross was set up to accept blood donations.

This blood drive brings the total units collected in Arizona Wing as part of its COVID-19 emergency blood donation mission to 316. That’s 63% of the mission goal to reach 500 units donated by the end of August.

“Great job, Blue Devils,” said Incident Commander Lt. Col. Bob Ditch.  

Eloy Squadron Commander Capt. Kevin Rattey set the example by donating blood at the CAP-sponsored blood drive at Eloy Jr. High.
