More than 100 donors give blood in honor of Colorado City veterinarian


COLORADO CITY, Texas - Friends, family and complete strangers came together for a blood drive Monday to benefit injured Colorado City veterinarian Justin Goebel.

Frances Baker with the Meek Blood Center said 125 units of blood were collected during Monday's blood drive at Mitchell County Hospital in Colorado City. She said the number of people that came out to support Goebel was a true testament to the community.

"Last year, we had one in Eastland where we saw 120 donors. These blood drives are pretty much spur of the moment. We just put this blood drive together on Friday and had it on Monday and we actually broke our record by seeing 125 donors," Baker said.

Justin has gone through at least 40 units of blood following last Monday's head-on collision near Sweetwater on Highway 70.
