The American Red Cross hosted a blood drive in Eden Valley on Wednesday, May 14th. Thank you to the donors. The end result was 66 units collected. The day ran well even with the special modifications we needed to abide by to maintain social distancing.
With the times that we are living in right now: uncertainty, worry, anxiety, restrictions (to name a few) it is great to see that volunteering to donate blood to a stranger, in need, is still high priority for donors to come out from our community and the neighboring communities. May you all stay safe, healthy, and strong.
Thank you to the volunteers and everyone that helped to promote and advertise for this event. A special thank you to the City of Eden Valley for opening the Community Center doors to host this essential business event.
The next blood drive in Eden Valley is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 17.
