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 January 6, 2014. There were 108 people who came in to share their life-giving blood. Our goal was 130 so we hope to make our goal next 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. Thank you all for all your help and preparation of the food, which was the best!!! 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.
Receiving her 4-gallon pin was Lori Jacobs. Receiving his 20-gallon pin was David Bahr, congratulations to you David, that is 160 pints. Also a big thank you for Larry Schugart who has donated 22-gallons. That is 176 pints. Fantasic job and please keep donating everyone! First time donor was Shae Griffin. Hope to see all of you at the next drive Monday March 17th.
We look forward to saving more lives at our next drive. The Blood Drive will be at St. Rose on Broadway and Baker again. If you would like to help, please call at 792-2580.
