The numbers were down for the June 19 Red Cross blood drive in West Salem. However, 31 units were collected from 36 potential donors. Every unit helps save the lives of three people.
Thank you to Union State Bank for sponsoring this drive with sandwiches from Subway Salads and Sandwiches, and to Linda's Bakery for cookies. Thank you also to the donors who came as well as the volunteers who did calling or worked.
The next blood drive is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 28, at the West Salem Presbyterian Church, so mark your calendars.
