Holiday Heroes Blood Drive Collects about 65 Units of Blood

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with TN Mornings at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A big thank you this morning to all of you who rolled up your sleeves for FOX17's day at the Red Cross. We collected about 65 units of blood. That's enough to save almost 200 lives. Bob Turpin of Smyrna made a donation Tuesday afternoon while Stacy, Barak and Scott Couch were there. His pint Tuesday makes 5 gallons in his lifetime. Turpin says there was a time he didn't know if he'd get there. Turpin has been giving ever since. The Red Cross needs help all year, but donations are always down around the holidays. So if you get a chance, stop by the blood center on Charlotte Avenue or check their website for a drive near you.
