Blood drive will save many lives

Thank-you to everyone who participated in the American Red Cross blood drive Oct. 7 at Hillsboro Mennonite Brethren Church.

Thirty-one 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 throughout our area.

As a blood donor or volunteer, each of you has helped the Red Cross fulfill its mission of a safe and ample blood supply. We thank you for being a part of this lifesaving experience.

We hope you will all look forward to giving or helping at the next blood drive at Parkview Church Monday, Dec. 9.
