The Sides family wants to show their children the importance of donating blood. Mrs. Sides was hit by a car at age 12 and required blood transfusions.

March 17 was the blood drive at the Caliente Community United Methodist Church, sponsored by RSVP.

With a smaller turnout due to colds and flu going around, 17 units of blood were collected, with five coming from people who gave double.

RSVP thanks everyone for taking the time to come in and donate.

The next donation date will be in July.
