Great turnout at blood drive

The Summit County Ambulance Service would like to thank the 58 folks who came out to donate blood at our blood drive and open house July 13.

Bonfils was really excited about the success of our first drive, and they are looking forward to coming back next year.

There were some miscommunications about the time of the drive, as well as how to get an appointment, which we will be sure to rectify next year –

we apologize for any

confusion or inconvenience.

On the whole, we were very pleased that so many folks stopped by to donate, to be of service and to give life to many others.

Just one donation helps three people. Thank you, and we’ll see you next year.

Summit County Ambulance, Frisco
