OCTOBER 5th BLOOD DRIVE CANCELLED
Thank You, Columbus!
The blood drive of July 13, 2013, was a wonderful success. Nearly 90 Army Reservists, National Guardsmen, and members of the public signed up to donate. Overall, we collected a total of over 70 pints of blood for wounded service members. That means the blood collected will be able to save up to 210 lives. The donations will be processed as soon as possible and immediately flown out by priority flight out of Wright-Patterson to the Middle East.
A warm and grateful thank you to the U.S. Army Reserve for allowing us to have the drive at their reserve center on Yearling Road, and a big thanks especially to the Blue Star Mothers of Central Ohio, not just for providing such a huge and wonderful assortment of food and beverages for all, but for their love and dedication for our serving members of the Armed Forces. Thank you so much, ladies!
Thanks also to the radio station 610-WTVN for announcing the drive to Central Ohio, and to NBC Channel 4 and ABC Channel 6 for covering our drive that Saturday.
The next drive in mid-October will as always be hosted by the U.S. Army Reserve Center and supported by the American Legion, Ohio 12th District Council.
Thank you Central Ohio, for your dedication in turning out for this noble endeavor.
