Fairbury Rural Fire Department Earns Hometown Heroes Donation

The Fairbury Rural Fire Department was presented with a check for $224 from Nebraska Community Blood Bank (NCBB) April 17, 2019, because of the successful participation in the NCBB Hometown Heroes campaign.

The NCBB Hometown Heroes program takes place each year from Memorial Day to Labor Day and is an opportunity for community members to join forces, help save lives, and enrich their community. Money is allocated from NCBB to blood drive partners when they reach their blood drive collections goals.

The Jefferson Community Health & Life blood drives took place on June 4 and Aug. 6, 2018, and collected a total of 58 units of blood and welcomed 4 new blood donors.

The hometown hero program will continue in 2019 as Jefferson Community Health & Life will be hosting two more blood drives this summer on June 3 and Aug. 5, 2019. To make an appointment please visit us at www.ncbb.org and use the sponsor code JCHC or call NCBB at 402-486-9414.

Every two seconds, someone needs blood. Because blood cannot be synthetically made, only volunteer blood donors can help save lives. If you are interested in being a hero in your community, visit NCBB.ORG/heroes or email blooddrives@NCBB.org
