WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Residents at the Brookdale Lake Wellington came out to help save a life by donating blood Thursday.

The blood drive was held at three locations in the Falls; Midwestern Parkway, Sikes lake and Lake Wellington. One blood donor, Margie Kendrick, spoke to our crews about helping save a life and finding a nice community to call home.

"Its just a relief. I don't have to cook a meal or wash a dish. They clean my room they just take care of all of my needs and its so i dont know relaxing. Come out and at least look at it because i don't know I've just never been in a place like this before"

Those who took part in the blood drive also were entered into a drawing to win a smart tv.
