Red Cross finds success at Estacada Community Center

Staci Crane of the Red Cross noted that donations in Estacada have significantly increased within the last six months, from an average of 22 pints collected to an average of 37 pints collected.

“Sherril (at the Community Center) has done a wonderful job of advertising,” Crane said. “She’ll put posters all over town. She does a really good job promoting.”

One pint of blood can help up to three patients.
