A huge, sincere thank you to everyone who helped to make the July 23 -24 Red Cross Bloodmobile visit to Aurora a success.
Thank you to all the donors -- those who donated whole blood, those who gave double-red cells and those who may have been deferred this time for one reason or another. The Red Cross depends on all of you and appreciates your efforts.
Thank you to all the volunteers who made time in their schedules to perform necessary tasks to assure that the visit ran smoothly.
There was an amazing turnout of potential donors and as a result 145 units of blood were collected during those two days. The current nationwide blood supply is at a critical low point and every single unit is extremely valuable.
If you’ve been thinking about donating ‘when someone needs it,’ that time has arrived. Anyone who missed the July drive in Aurora and would like to donate can contact redcrossblood.org to find time and location of a drive near them or is encouraged to mark the upcoming September drive on their calendars.
Every unit donated makes a huge difference to the person who receives it. Thank you again.
Volunteers make fair delightful
I want to thank the organizers and volunteers who worked at the 2012 Hamilton County Fair.
It was my first experience to submit entries to the open class show (senior division). The help and guidance I received from beginning (registering) to end (picking up my goods) was outstanding.
It was a delightful first-time experience of being a participant.
Food-raiser helps local food pantry
Thank you to the people of Aurora!
During the month of May, Super Wash car washes across the country participated in an annual food-raiser. A percentage of the proceeds are donated to local food pantries. We are thrilled to announce that nationally, donations totaled $66,500. A donation has been made in the amount of $203.50 to your local food pantry. Thanks Aurora for your patronage, which resulted in this donation.
In a time when so many are struggling to make ends meet and Congress is debating the next Farm Bill, potentially affecting access to food stamps, supporting our local food pantries becomes even more critical. According to Feed America’s website, $1 can provide eight meals. Supporting the food pantry is an awesome opportunity to make a positive difference right here at home.
Please accept our gratitude for your support of the local food pantries through the Super Wash food-raiser.
