The blood drive held in Harmony on September 26, 2017, succeeded in collecting 52 units of blood which was three over their goal. There were 56 donors that presented and one first-time participant. Congratulations to these five donors who reached the following milestones: Richard Berg – 11 gallons, Fena Hershberger – two gallons, Averlene Marzolf – seven gallons, Jim Randa – three gallons, Freddie Zook – two gallons.
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, and a special thank you to the donors for their patience when things backed up a bit near the end of the drive.
The next bloodmobile will be in Harmony on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, from 1-7 p.m. If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please call Marilyn Bratager at (507) 937-3406 or schedule one online at www.redcrossblood.org.
