To the Editor:

Thank you to the Kilowatt Community Center for hosting another successful Blood Drive on January 16, 2018. And to the Red Cross staff who worked so selflessly to accommodate the donors. There were 94 donors. We are grateful to those who gave for the first time and those who participated in the Community Health Challenge. Because of your generosity we collected 90 units of blood. Special thanks to Merlin Buchholz and Dorian Grove, whose donations represent a lifetime total donation of 13 gallons and Emmajean Iverson for 12 gal.

Thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers- registration, kitchen, and observers for their hard work and willingness to serve. Thank you as well to St. Paul Lutheran Church for providing and serving the delicious meal for the workers. A special thank you to: Almich’s Market and Carl’s Bakery, for their donations to the canteen.

The next Blood Drive will be Monday, April 23 at the KCC. We look forward to seeing you there.
