Thank you to all the donors who contributed to the success of the bloodmobile held in Harmony on December 1, 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to cause a few ripples in the water, including reduced Red Cross staff due to quarantined workers. However, despite the long waits endured by the donors, 45 units were collected. There were 42 donors presenting with two first-time donors. The following milestones were reached by local donors:
• Chris Johnson – 13 gallons
• Darrel Olson – 5 gallons
• Taryn Raaen – 1 gallon
• Todd Ristau – 1 gallon
The bloodmobile is sponsored by the Harmony American Legion Auxiliary, and many of the volunteers are Auxiliary members. However, numerous volunteers from the community also help make our blood drives successful. Thank you to everyone for your continued support in this worthwhile effort.
The next bloodmobile will be in Harmony on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, from 1-7 p.m. It is likely that appointments will be mandatory again, so please call Marilyn Bratager at (507) 937-3406 to schedule one, or schedule one online at www.redcrossblood.org.
