Blood drive results
Wednesday, September 21, 2016
I wanted to share the Spirit Lake blood drive results from Tuesday, Sept. 6. We had 20 donors register, and we collected 22 units that will save up to 66 lives.
Donors who also reached milestones:
David Nelson -- 5 gallons
Chad Klein -- 2 gallons
Maurine Montag -- 2 gallons
John Salewske -- 1 gallon
There were others that attended the drive, but didn't have a chance to register, and I want to apologize for that. We unfortunately started collecting blood multiple hours behind schedule. We are committed to being better than this and will be in the future. I cannot thank the blood donors of Spirit Lake and the surrounding areas enough for their commitment to saving lives through blood donation.
The next blood drive in Spirit Lake is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Dickinson County Community Building. Schedule an appointment today at www.lifeservebloodcenter.org or by calling 1-800-287-4903.
