 As you know the holidays are coming soon and what is needed most cannot be purchased to save a life …donate blood to the Red Cross. Please consider helping us reach our goal and ask your apprentices, coworkers and friends and family to donate during this most important time of year. Anyone that participates will receive a T-shirt and we will also have some food and beverages. Please RSVP to Joni with how many you can send so we can reach this most important goal “The Gift of Life”.
