'gift of life'

Blood drive coordinator Bernice Hinds, along with the Park Rapids community, have coordinated and sponsored another successful blood drive in Park Rapids.

Fifty-two people volunteered to donate. Of those, 36 were able to give and 42 units were collected. In addition, three people gave blood for the first time.

Small community blood drives like the one in Park Rapids make a regional blood program work. They put together a well-organized campaign, informing the public of the need for blood. People volunteer to donate when they know how important it is.

St. Johns Lutheran Church provided space to hold the drive.

Congratulations, Park Rapids. On behalf of the patients who benefited, United Blood Services appreciates all of the thoughtful people who volunteered to help others by giving of themselves. Blood is for sharing; you have truly given the Gift of Life.
