Letter: Thanks for making blood drive a success

By on June 25, 2009

Thank you Elburn community for supporting our recent blood drive. Forty five people came out to donate and we collected 36 pints of blood. We would like to give a special thanks to the following American Legion Auxiliary members who volunteer faithfully to make sure the drives go off without and glitches: Carrie Petrie, Cecelia Lund, Kay Swift, Ann Lambert and Helen Johnson. Of course, a gracious thank you to Heartland Blood Centers for making this service available for us. Lastly, we want to thank Paisano’s Pizza for providing pizza for the donors and staff at the drive.

Out next drive will be Thursday, Oct. 8, 2009 at the Elburn Legion hall. Please mark your calendars. We are always looking for new donors. From registration to refreshments, it only takes about an hour to give a pint of life-saving blood. Hope to see you there.
