Thanks for gift of life

December 11, 2012
The Daily Mining Gazette

To the editor:

On behalf of the U.P. Regional Blood Center, I would like to thank the following people and organizations for hosting blood drives in the month of November: Brian Donelly and Kristina Coon from River Valley Bank, Mike Roland from Calumet High School and Lena Wascher from Finlandia University.

As a result of everyone's efforts, we collected an outstanding 84 pints of blood. I would like to also thank all of the volunteer blood donors for taking the time to give the "gift of life."

Thank you for supporting your community blood center.


Coordinator of Blood Collections
