The PrimeSouth Bank Blood Bank Challenge took aim at the local 254-pint record. If it had fallen, PrimeSouth would have given a $255 prize to a randomly chosen donor.
The Waycross Area Blood Drive Volunteers thanked the local bank for its outstanding support. The result was one of the best blood drives in recent months. The bank made a similar challenge 10 months ago and the result was a drive that yielded more than 200 units of donated blood.
