|Every unit of blood makes a difference|
To the editor:
A huge, sincere thank you to everyone who helped to make the July 23 -24 Red Cross Bloodmobile visit to Aurora a success.
Thank you to all the donors -- those who donated whole blood, those who gave double-red cells and those who may have been deferred this time for one reason or another. The Red Cross depends on all of you and appreciates your efforts.
Thank you to all the volunteers who made time in their schedules to perform necessary tasks to assure that the visit ran smoothly.
There was an amazing turnout of potential donors and as a result 145 units of blood were collected during those two days. The current nationwide blood supply is at a critical low point and every single unit is extremely valuable.
If you’ve been thinking about donating ‘when someone needs it,’ that time has arrived. Anyone who missed the July drive in Aurora and would like to donate can contact redcrossblood.org to find time and location of a drive near them or is encouraged to mark the upcoming September drive on their calendars.
Every unit donated makes a huge difference to the person who receives it. Thank you again.
