A Red Cross blood drive June 17 at Trinity Mennonite Church collected 54 donations. It was the first time the blood drive had reached its goal in some time.
“It is wonderful to think of all the lives that will be touched by the blood donations,” co-chairmen Gladys Funk and Shirley Kasper said in a letter. “Blood shortages are increasingly common as many people who were once regular blood donors are now in need of medical treatments that require blood. We need more people to make blood donation a routine community responsibility.”
The next drive in Hillsboro will be Aug. 12 at Hillsboro United Methodist Church.
