The American Red Cross visited Eden Valley Thursday, May 9.
Thank you to all the donors, volunteers, and sponsors. Thank you to the Legion and the Legion Auxiliary for volunteering in the canteen and picking up the tab for the snacks.
Thank you to the members of the Church of God for the meal provided for the workers.
Thanks to the Eden Valley Lions for the butter and cheese donation.
Thanks to all who helped advertise; the Tri-County News, EV-W Voice, other local papers, marquee, churches, local businesses, and radio stations.
A special shout out to the Eden Valley Community Center for the use of the facility; the space is welcoming and accommodating.
Thank you; thank you to the donors. The end result was 83 units collected (this was 12 units over goal)! Appointments are great but thank you to the walk-ins that help fill the spots where donors are unable to make their appointment times. The day was busy but the staff did a super job keeping the lines moving. It is so nice to see the wide variety of people come together to make it a great day.
We are always looking for more donors to volunteer their time to donating lifesaving blood. If blood donating is not your thing there are other opportunities for you to get involved; you could help call donors, greet at the door, help in the canteen, etc.
Next blood drive dates are: Wednesday, July 10 in Watkins and Monday, August 12 in Eden Valley.
