Thanks to 44 donors at recent blood drive


Thank-you to everyone who participated in the American Red Cross blood drive April 22 at First Mennonite Church in Hillsboro. Forty-four people came in to share their life-giving blood.

We can feel proud we did our civic duty and helped to ensure lifesaving blood is available for patients in hospitals in many areas. The need has been real the past two weeks as our nation had two disasters with many injuries.

We had two new donors. We would encourage others to come and be a first-time donor at the next drive, which will be June 17 at Trinity Mennonite Church. Let?s try to exceed the number of donors we had in our recent drive.

Thanks to all the donors and volunteers.

Gladys Funk, Shirley Kasper
