On Aug. 29, Vermont’s Enhanced 9-1-1 Board sponsored an American Red Cross blood drive in Montpelier. The drive was a success thanks to the many donors and potential donors who were willing to take the time and give the gift of life. A blood drive is nothing without donors; your efforts were greatly and truly appreciated.
We’d also like to thank the city of Montpelier and the Capitol Plaza Hotel and Conference Center for space to park the mobile unit and space to register and seat donors. Thanks to local merchants, including Montpelier Pharmacy and Guitar Sam, for prominently displaying posters. Thanks to WDEV radio and the Front Porch Forum for allowing us to announce the drive, and to The Bridge, The Times Argus and The World for their calendar listings. Thanks, too, to friends, family and co-workers who shared the invitation to participate and give blood.
It takes a community to make a blood drive successful. We have a good community. Thank you all.
