The Delta Blood Bank held a blood drive at the Oakdale Rural Fire Protection District's station No. 1 for two Modesto firefighters recuperating from burns suffered while fighting a fire.
Among the donors Monday was Capt. Dan Snyder, 43, of the Lathrop Manteca Fire Department. He said he was donating because "all of us are brothers and brotherhood has no boundaries."
Blood donated benefits firefighters Jason Clevenger and engineer James Adams, who fell through the roof of a garage at a Modesto house Jan. 1.
