drive set for July 10
We are hoping that many of you are already thinking about the summer blood drive which will be July 10th from 12:00 to 6:00 PM at the Cottonwood Hall.
This is a very important drive because summer time is a hard time to get donors to give up their time and come and donate. But...the need for blood is constant, even more so in the summer. It seems that the vacation times are also dangerous times. We are sure that many of you can think of someone you know that has had need of blood in the past and certainly we all are
aware of friends and relative that will be needing some in the future.
We fell a teeny bit short of our goal last May. We are hoping that we can make it this time. It is important to do your best to keep your appointment because those in need are counting on you. WE really do need new faces this time. It is a very easy task to donate blood. Takes about an hour and then you are treated to our fabulous maple bars. Just a reminder, an ID is needed before you can donate, such as your Red Cross Card, Driver's license or Social Security card, etc.
So, remember July 10th, 12:00 to 6:00 PM at the Cottonwood Community Hall. To make or confirm appointments, call Sally Terhaar at 962-3192 or Irma Tacke at 962-3964. AND, be sure you eat iron rich foods so you can donate.
