Bloodmobile had good turnout
The Minneota Bloodmobile last week had 43 presenting, three deferrals, and one incomplete for a total of 45 pints collected (33 whole blood and six power red cells).
We exceeded our goal of 44 by one pint. We would like to thank the Rotary for sponsoring the bloodmobile by paying for the meals for the Red Cross workers and volunteers and for calling the blood donors.
Thank you to the American Legion for donating the site and to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and Hemnes Lutheran Church for providing the cookies, crackers and cheese for the donors.
Thanks to Julie Kack, Donna Buysse, Judy Traen, Glenda Fink, Becky Engels, Kathy Wyffels and Brenda Verschelde for volunteering as greeters and in the canteen area and to MaryAnn Sarazyn for distributing the posters.
By everyone working together, we had a successful Bloodmobile.
