Tuesday, July 16, 2019

The LifeServe Blood Center blood drive sponsored by the Spirit Lake Community on Tuesday, July 9, had a great turn-out! Thirty-nine donors registered and 42 life-saving units of blood were donated. Thank you to everyone that came out to help boost the local blood supply. The units donated at the blood drive can help save up to 126 lives. There were a few milestone donors, who are listed below and a special thanks to John Guthrie for sponsoring and hosting the blood drive.

Milestone Donors:

David Nelson of Arnolds Park 6 gallons

Deborah Travis of Milford 22 gallons
