Letter: Blood drive was huge success

We answered the need for an immediate shortage for every blood type. The March 7 Blood Drive in Sugar Grove was a huge success, with 83 donors. We deeply appreciate all the hard work provided by the Sugar Grove Firefighters Auxiliary, the Sugar Grove Fire Department, the Heartland Blood Center staff and all of our extra volunteers.
