Thank You From The American Red Cross

Dear Broadlands Association, Inc.

The American Red Cross, the patients we serve, and I personally would like to thank you for   sponsoring the Friday, August 30 blood drive.

Through the dedication of Broadlands Home Owner’s Association, we were able to collect 17   productive pints of blood with 18 individuals presenting to donate!  Those blood donations have the potential to save 51 hospital patients who rely on our combined efforts for life-saving blood.  It is only through the support of groups like yours that we are able to continue this life-saving endeavor.

Again, thank you for your support of the Red Cross blood program.  Please send my thanks to everyone who participated in the drive and let them know that they are silent hometown heroes.  I look forward to working with you in the future!

Best Wishes,

Judy Kordella
