Kim Sanborn, left, and Leslie Crum, of Craig, donate blood at The Memorial Hospital on Tuesday afternoon. Bonfils Blood Center held blood drives at TMH and Moffat County High School throughout the day. Crum, who has been a donor since she was 18, said she gives blood because she has a rare blood type: O negative. According to the American Red Cross, only 7 percent of the population has O negative blood, a blood type that can be administered universally. Crum also said she donates because so few people throughout the country do. According to America's Blood Centers, less than 10 percent of the population donates annually.
