Garrison Blood Drive

 November 5, 2013, Collin Williams and Madison Rambin were in an accident that claimed both their lives after the vehicle they were in hydroplaned. Lives were changed that day. Amber Lockhart and myself wanted to help Madison's mom, Shawn Rambin, which was a long time friend and classmate. After talking, we decided that we would do a blood drive to honor Collin Williams and Madison Rambin. Madison was a huge advocate for blood donation. What better way to honor her.
