LETTERS: Blood drive a success

To the Editor:

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes and the American Red Cross would like to thank the heroes who donated blood Dec. 17 at the Hillsboro Red Cross blood drive. Blood donors are true heroes and deserve to know how much they are appreciated.

As the largest supplier of blood in the country, the Red Cross works diligently to collect sufficient quantities of blood to respond when needed. Blood donors and volunteers are essential to the success of the American Red Cross.

Thank you to everyone who made our last blood drive a success. We cannot fulfill our mission without each and every one of you.

We had a goal of 60 units and we were successful in getting 69 units with seven coming from first-time donors. What a success with all the willing donors coming to give.
