January is National Blood Donor Month.
Marcia Burkle says it’s a time to recognize generous blood donors and recognize the need for blood donations.
Burkle says at the last blood drive, they asked donors to share with them in writing why they donate – here’s one of the responses.
You can make a difference and donate this Wednesday at the Manchester Community Blood Drive. The blood drive will run from 11 to 5:30 pm at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. And along with making a difference and saving someone’s life, they’ve got a special perk you can sign up for.
Appointments are preferred – call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter Sponsor Code: ManchesterIA to sign up.
