Blood Drive – THANK YOU!

“WOW! WOW! WOW! What an amazing week it was!” That was our message from Katie Bartelson, the Senior Recruitment Representative at Vitalant after tallying the results from our successful blood drive held here at Calvary.
 
There were 174 blood products collected, and 15 first time volunteers! Thank you to all who gave of their time to make this effort happen. Sara Forsberg, Candy Bugge, Beth Krueger, and Kathy Peterson were dedicated callers. Many of you brought snacks and bars, and Marleen Seach welcomed all who came to register all 3 days!! Special thanks to our efficient and enthusiastic coordinator Kathy Peterson! Your work and encouraging leadership makes it all happen smoothly! And of course our greatest appreciation is saved for each and every blood donor…..because of your generosity, lives will be saved. Thank you for your blood donation!
