More donors needed for blood drives
It is great to think of all the lives that will be touched by the blood donations given at the American Red Cross blood drive June 18 at Trinity Chuch in Hillsboro. We had 51 people who came to donate.
Blood shortages are increasingly common as many people who were once regular blood donors are now in need of medical treatments that require blood.
We need more people to make blood donation a routine community responsibility.
Donating blood is safe and easy, and something so simple is also so very vital.
Thank-you to everyone who made our last drive a success—to all the donors and volunteers who helped in some way. Our next drive will be Aug. 13 at the United Methodist Church.
