Letter: Thanks for giving the gift of life

Thank you to all who came out to donate blood Jan. 4 at the Red Cross Bloodmobile at the Washington fire hall. We had 35 people attempt to make a donation, which resulted in 32 useful pints of blood. We appreciate all who took the time at the beginning of the new year to give the gift of life. You may be gratified in knowing that a single donation of whole blood may help to save up to three lives!

Thanks also to Chief Gary Jenkins for allowing the use of the Washington fire hall. We look forward to seeing everyone again at our next Bloodmobile in the summer!

Marie Riedel and Marie Davis
Co-Chairs, Red Cross Bloodmobile
