St. Paul’s thanks
Editor, Daily Union: On behalf of the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church blood drive committee, thank you to the 63 donors who took time out of their schedule to donate blood on Saturday, Aug. 10.
A special thank you goes to the three first-time donors. Hopefully, they are beginning a lifelong practice of donating blood.
We are especially thankful for the attending donors as during this busy vacation and travel season the demand for blood remains high. The 65 units of blood collected will potentially help 187 patients some possibly at our Fort Atkinson hospital or any of the 57 Wisconsin hospitals including the VA hospitals served by the BloodCenter of Wisconsin.
Thank you to Thrivent Financial for supporting our drive through their Thrivent Action Team program and WFAW for their community calendar. And of course, thanks to our volunteers who prepared and served the delicious food for which our drive has become known.
Please mark your calendars for our next blood drive on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 7 a.m. to noon. — Sincerely, Rich Schilt, St. Paul’sbBlood drive chairman, Fort Atkinson.
