LETTERS: Blood drive a success

To the editor:

Thank you to everyone who participated in the American Red Cross blood drive March 29 in Hillsboro.

Seventy-three people gave blood. We can feel proud we did our civic duty and helped to ensure lifesaving blood is available for hospital patients in need.

Blood donors and volunteers help fulfill the mission of the Red Cross to provide a safe and ample blood supply. Hospital patients rely on us and we delivered.

We want to thank each of you for being a part of this lifesaving experience.

The next blood drive will be May 27. Anyone interested in helping should call us.

For more information about blood donation and the need for blood, call (800) 448-3543 or go to
