“We’ve all heard the term “blood brothers,” but last evening (Jan. 21) we had the ‘Hart sisters’ come to the Springfield Community Blood Center together to register to donate blood,” says CBC Springfield Rep. Judy Blankenship.
In the chair is Rachael Hart, a senior at Greenon High School. She has an application and plans to compete for a $1,000 Lead the Way Creative Scholarship. Rachael also plans to donate again in 8 weeks, which would qualify her to receive the CBC Red Cord at graduation.
Her sister Rebekah is a Greenon High graduate who donated twice in high school. She is now attending Wittenberg University.
“Rachael & Rebekah, thank you both for taking the time from your busy schedules to stop by the Springfield location of the Community Blood Center,” says Judy. “Your support is truly appreciated.”
