Knights of Columbus blood drive team thanks teen volunteer for years of service
Paul Roof of Knights of Columbus Council #10962 and St. John the Evangelist Parish in Paducah writes:
As the Red Cross blood drive organizer since 1993 at Council #10962, I have had many people volunteer. The face of our blood drive, Lexi Roof, has been our sign-in volunteer since she was nine years old, and is finishing up her senior year in high school. We will miss her beautiful smile. Our past blood drive on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022 had a total of 45 units donated. Over the years the St. John’s community has donated 2,553 units of blood to the American Red Cross, which could be used to save as many as 7,600 lives (3 people/unit of blood). Thanks Lexi for the many hours of volunteering you have done over the years!
