Letter: Thanks for 37 pints on June 27

We would like to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to come out to the Washington fire hall on June 27 to donate blood for the American Red Cross Bloodmobile. There was a great turnout of 51 people attempting to donate, and 37 pints of blood were collected, which put us well over our goal of 30 pints! To those who did not receive their $10 Target gift card as a thank-you gift, the Red Cross should be mailing them out to you soon. We also thank fire chief Gary Jenkins and the Washington Fire and Rescue volunteers for allowing us the use of their hall once again.

Please look for our next blood drive in January, but in the meantime, try to give the gift of life when you are next eligible at the nearest Red Cross Blood Drive!

Co-chairs, Red Cross Bloodmobile
