CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
The Cincinnati Bengals once again partnered with the Hoxworth Blood Center for their 11th annual blood drive.
The drive was held at Paul Brown Stadium where there was no shortage of donors. Alecia Lipton with Hoxworth says this year's drive was a record setter, with 907 products collected.
The annual blood drives have always been hailed as a success because donors in Cincinnati, like Barbara Thornton, have always stepped up to the plate.
"I consider myself pretty committed to basically donate every month," said Thornton.
Thornton of Anderson Township has donated more than 25 gallons of blood over the years and she's begun donating platelets. She says it's important to her.
"I don't have a lot of money to give to my favorite charity, but I do have health. My dad got us started," she said.
There are many people who donate as often as they can. Al Stewart of Reading says he started donating when he was in the Air Force.
"I started giving blood when I was in the service when my son was first born....that was 50 years ago," said Stewart.
Mark Harrison of Western Hills says donating is the right thing to do.
"I've been donating for awhile now. It's just for a good cause and you never know when you might need blood so it's just a way to give back to the community," he said.
This is the largest single day blood drive in Cincinnati with dozens of volunteers.
Lipton says the need for donations just keeps growing.
"Everyday we need to collect at least 400 units of blood and that's just to maintain the needs of patients at our Tri-State hospitals," she said.
