As a part of Hickok Cole’s 25 Acts of Kindness, the Full Circle Committee sponsored a school supply drive to benefit Operation Backpack. All of the supplies donated will benefit children living in local homeless and domestic violence shelters. The drive was a huge success!
On July 17th HCA hosted its first ever blood drive in collaboration with the American Red Cross. With the help of 27 donors the Red Cross was able to collect 19 units of blood to help support a current deficit in the local blood bank. Donations were down about 10% in June and the Red Cross issued an emergency request for donors of all blood types.
