Hagerstown Boy Scout Troop 5 sponsors Red Cross blood drive

May 04, 2008

Boy Scout Troop 5, Hagerstown, sponsored a Red Cross Blood Drive at the Red Cross Donor Center in Hagerstown.

This was a community service project as part of Scouting requirements.

There were 10 participating Scouts in the daylong blood drive.

Thirty-seven individuals were registered to donate and 27 units of blood were successfully donated.

With the help of the Scouts, several parents and friends were able to donate blood.

The bloodhound costume was from the Red Cross. Several Scouts took turns wearing the costume and parading near the Weis Markets grocery store handing out Red Cross brochures and waving to people on the corner of Eastern Boulevard.

Troop 5 is sponsored by St Ann's Presbyterian Church, Hagerstown.
