Blood drive

To the editor:

I would like to thank everyone who came to donate blood on Friday at the Red Cross blood drive and everyone who helped coordinate the event. I was able to help coordinate through the Leaders Save Lives Scholarship Program. In total, 59 pints of blood were collected.

A big thank you to Dale’s Supermarket for donating Hillsboro Sausage for all of the donors and workers; to the Brenda Bartel family, who stayed after donating to help check people in; to Lori Thurston for providing snacks and helping donors; to Debbie Reasoner and Staci Silhan for their overall help the whole day; to the amazing, hard-working nurses who helped save lives; and to everyone who donated or came in to try to donate.
