Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8560 and American Legion Post 66 officials honored those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks by hosting the Carter BloodCare’s mobile unit for a blood drive Saturday. Group officers report it was another successful blood drive, with 39 volunteering and 33 units actually collected.
American Legion Post 66 JAG William Cassy and Post Commander Andy Lowen offer “many thanks to everyone who came out to participate and to honor the memory of lives lost tragically on September 11, 2001. It was great to see the community come together for a great cause. We hope to see even more of the community at the next one.”
Although the date has yet to be set, American Legion officials said they do hope to be able to host another blood drive during the winter months, to ensure blood banks have the supply needed to meet the needs of area hospitals and healthcare facilities.
