Letter: Thanks for donating blood; more help needed — 06/21/12

On May 15th the Montesano Community, American Red Cross Blood Drive was hosted by the Montesano Presbyterian Church. Thank you to Jim Leggett and all the other volunteers who helped make this drive a success. Thank you also to the people who volunteer at every drive and help make it so much fun.

This drive saw a lower than normal amount of units donated. I think the unusually nice weather kept donors away. We had a higher donation count in January with all that snow on the ground!

Summertime sometimes sees a drop in donations, yet a rise in needed units. Please consider donating during this crucial time. The next drive will be July 17 at the Montesano Church of God.
