American Legion Post No. 22 breaks blood drive records


Dear Editor:

American Legion Miller-Campbell-Baker Post No. 22 of Luray, wants to thank all of our wonderful blood donors during this past year for all you’ve done.

Twice during 2020, our donors stepped up to break all records — first on Oct. 14, with 37 units collected (a 22-percent gain over the previous record of 29 units), and again on Dec. 10, with 47 units collected (another 14 percent over October’s record).

We applaud you — each and every one of our donors — all of you. Well done. Well done, indeed.

Thank you, we couldn’t have done it without you.

Totals for the year are 384 life-saving units of blood in 13 blood drives, averaging 29.5 units per drive. Even our average is a new record — we collected 25.4 units per drive in 2019.

Our 2020 season is over, and the first blood drive of 2021 will be held Thursday, Jan. 14 at Luray’s American Legion Post No. 22, next to Inn Lawn Park and the Page Public Library.

David Wittich ~ Adjunct, American Legion Post No. 22, Luray, Va.
