Letters From Leton: Jim Swartz Guest Post

This week I’d like to share a story from Jim Swartz, Vice President and Loan Review Officer:

“Last month I donated blood with Marsh at the Virginia Tech 4/16 blood drive. The Marsh folks reminded me of us. Very friendly, jovial, and got the job done. I had never donated with them before. I’d donated via Johnston Memorial Hospital and Blood Assurance, but today was a first time for me with Marsh Blood.

I mentioned to the nurse as she was checking my vitals before the donation that I was reaching the 10 gallon mark in total donations. We talked a bit about my history with the hospital and then the other blood bank. As I’m sitting on the donation cot, here she comes with a 10-gallon lapel pin! I’d given up on ever getting one….  Sometimes it’s the little things that make you remember something.”
