The Red Cross blood supply relies on the generosity of volunteer donors. People commonly underestimate the need for blood and the difference that even one donation can make to ensure blood is available when and where it’s needed.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the American Red Cross Blood Drive, Monday Sept. 16th. There were 114 people who gave their life-giving blood. Our goal was 145 so we didn’t make our goal this time. All who donated can feel proud we did our civic duty and helped to ensure lifesaving blood is available for patients in hospitals throughout our area.
As a blood donor or volunteer, each of you has helped the Red Cross fulfill their mission of a safe and ample blood supply. Hospital patients rely on us and we delivered! I want to thank each of you for being a part of this lifesaving experience. Especially St. Rose Church who let us use their facility. En-Rev provided the fresh bottled water as they always do. R.S.V.P. was a lot of help, which they always are. We couldn’t do it without you. Also, a big thank you to the Trustees from Barton County. They were a great help setting up for the Blood Drive. This was a really big help to us.
We hope to see all of you for the next drive Nov. 11th. Thank you to all who have taken the time to donate. It is well appreciated by many.
A one-gallon pin was issued to Paula Tammen while Megan Clemons and Lindsey Mitchell received two-gallon pins. Receiving a ten-gallon pin was Sylvia DesLauriers. Thats 80 pints. Great job all of you! We hope to see you at the next Blood Drive in November.
We look forward to saving more lives at our next drive Monday, Nov.11th. The Blood Drive will be at St. Rose on Broadway and Baker again. If you would like to help, please call at 800-Give-Life.
