To the Editor,
I hope your day is going well. Another awesome blood drive with the Block Island community.
The efforts of the Block Island community are greatly appreciated and their support of the community blood program will go a long way toward replenishing blood supplies that ultimately save lives this summer.
You may be interested to know that 34 donors registered to give blood and that 32 units of blood were collected at your drive. Since each unit can help three patients, up to 96 lives may be saved!
We had three first-time donors.
We have your next blood drive running on November 3 at Harbor Church.
Again, thank you for your contribution and ongoing support of this important community program.
