BECKLEY - Dozens donated blood Monday in Beckley.

The City of Beckley and UC Beckley sponsored an American Red Cross blood drive at the John W. Eye Conference Center. Officials said the organizations hosted the drive because blood supplies are dangerously low.

Scott Hill, donor recruitment representative for the American Red Cross, said he is grateful of those gave blood. “ Someone is going to have an extra tomorrow because of what they did today,” he said.

Beckley and UC Beckley surpassed their donation goal of 30 units of blood, according to Hill.
