Blood drive success


To the Editor:

We had a record 31 walk-ins for the Feb. 9 community blood drive. A total of 73 units were donated, three over the goal of 70.

It was the first time donating for five of the people who participated.

The next blood drive in La Grande is set for April 19. Sign up early by calling Denny and Colleen Langford at 541-523-5055.
