Letter: Thank you for donating

We would like to thank all of those in the Rappahannock community who came out to the Washington fire hall on June 26 to donate blood for the Red Cross Bloodmobile. A total of 24 units of blood were collected, with 29 people attempting to donate. Only three percent of the U.S. population donates blood, so the Red Cross is truly grateful for those who do take the time from their day to donate!

We also thank Chief Gary Jenkins for the use of the fire hall and for those who “cooled it down” for us before the Blood Drive on such a hot day!  Our next Bloodmobile will be in early January, and we hope to see you all there!

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