TV Coverage on the day of the Donor Screening Drive
The following local television news programs covered the February 29 donor drive held at Temple Emanuel of South Hills in Pittsburgh, PA. This was the first major donor drive organized by Amy's Army and the planning committee was hoping to see maybe 1,000 people come to the event. We were "blown away" by the outpouring of caring demonstrated by the community. We counted 1657 blood samples collected that day, every one of them a potential donor who might be chosen someday to help someone with a life-threatening blood disease. Caution: Watching these videos may alter your perception of the world in which we live!
