CRESTVIEW — Cold, dreary weather didn't stop many from donating blood today at Crestview High School.

Four bloodmobiles, including staff from Northwest Florida Blood Services, were in front of the school from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.  

"In the last three and half hours, we have already signed in over a hundred people," said Ashley Williams, community relations representative for Northwest Florida Blood Services in Crestview.

Attendance surpassed last year’s count.

"Last year, we had around 80 at this time," Williams said. "We're probably going to be doubling that this year."
