SPRINGFIELD COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE

THANK YOU!

   The Springfield Community Blood Drive had another great turn out. Our goal Sunday was 45 units and we finished the day collecting 54 units. What a great turnout for Springfield and our neighbors all around the area. I credit the high number do to all the walk ins that showed up Sunday. Once again, thanks to all who donated and also you who made the effort to donate but were not able to. Also thanks to all of the local merchants, Fire Dept. and City workers who do a part in making this effort a success. Thanks, again.
