~eatner t~wer t~ulleun Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014 3A Joyce Adams said she gives blood because it helps other people and it's good for you. Adams said she has A-negative blood, which occurs in only about I out of 16 people in the U.S., or 6.3 percent of the population. Four times a year the Quincy Church of Latter-day Saints opens its doors for community blood drives. Laura Beaton Donnal Nichols, left, and Katherine Kinne enjoy the mandatory 15-minute rest period after donating blood. Nichols was in nursing school when she learned she has B-negative blood, which only about 1 in 67, or 1.5 percent, of the U.S. population has, meaning it is in high demand. Kinne said she was inspired to donate when her son was a baby and had to be hospitalized. That got her thinking and now it has been 35 years since she began donating blood.
