Take Time To Donate Blood

To The Editor:

Last week you published an article from the American Red Cross discussing the low blood supply and in conjunction with that, I would like to urge all those who are able to donate at one of the upcoming blood drives. I realize it is a busy time of year, but these supplies can make a life or death difference. I know this because last year I received a blood transfusion the day after Thanksgiving. While many were out shopping on Black Friday, I was giving birth to a handsome, little boy. Things didn't go quite right and I required four units of blood. I shudder to think what would have happened had those supplies not been available to me. Please take the time to donate.

Upcoming sites are December 3 - 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at Mc- Connellsburg United Presbyterian Church;

December 5 - 9:00 a.m. to 2 p.m., Fulton County Area Vocational Technical School, McConnellsburg;

January 8 - 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Presbyterian Faith Center in Warfordsburg. Thank you, Susan Householder Warfordsburg
