To the editor:
Thank you to everyone who participated Sept. 23 in the American Red Cross blood drive. There were 79 people who came to share their life-giving blood; four of them were first-time donors. We can feel proud we did our civic duty and helped to ensure lifesaving blood is available for patients in hospitals throughout our area.
As blood donors or volunteers, each of you has helped the Red Cross fulfill the mission of 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.
We hope you look forward to saving more lives at our next drive Nov. 22.
If you would like to help, please call us.
