Red Cross

appreciates help

To the Editor:

During the summer months it is difficult to collect enough blood due to summer vacations and schools being on break. I would like to extend a big thank you to Kahler Automation and Avery Weigh-Tronix for supporting the American Red Cross by sponsoring a blood drive on July 19. Twenty-one units of blood were collected and there were five first time donors. This greatly helped the blood center during the summer appeal.
