Letter: You helped Bloodmobile surpass its goals

We would like to thank everyone who came out to support the Red Cross Bloodmobile on Jan. 8 at the Washington fire hall. A total of 31 usable pints of blood was collected by the Red Cross, which surpassed our goal. Every two seconds someone needs blood, and a single donation of whole blood may help save up to three lives.

We thank all of our longtime donors, as well as the new donors who took the time and effort to help save lives. We also thank Washington Fire and Rescue Chief Gary Jenkins and members for allowing the Bloodmobile to come to our community for the past 22 years. We hope to see our regular donors, as well as new faces, at our next Bloodmobile in the summer!

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