Lewiston – Joint efforts from members of the Lewiston-Auburn Rotary Lunch Club and Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Breakfast Club in partnership with the Lewiston CareerCenter to sponsor a Gift of Life blood drive with the Red Cross was a huge success. Fifteen donors participated breaking the CareerCenter record of eight previously. Christine Wilson, Mac McPeake and Lorraine Bard assisted with the event welcoming donors at the registration desk. “I am pleased to report that even as it came down to the wire, 15 units of blood were collected at your drive,” shared April Caron, Business Development Manager, American Red Cross. “As some of you may know, each unit of blood collected helps up to three patients in need – that means your donors helped save the lives of 45 people!
Thank you for all that you did to make the drive such an enjoyable experience. From the wonderful volunteers at registration, to the amazing catered lunch and opportunity to meet your members, it was a great day.” L-A Rotary Lunch Club meets every Thursday, noon to 1 p.m. at The Village Inn, Auburn. A-L Rotary Breakfast Club meets every Wednesday at 7:15 a.m. at the Auburn United Methodist Church. FMI visit https://facebook.com/lewistonmainerotary/ and www.auburn-lewistonrotary.org.
