Sleepy Eye Bloodmobile Surpasses Goal 20 Jan 12

Blood donors in Sleepy Eye earlier this week surpassed the goal set by the American Red Cross. The Bloodmobile was at the Eagle’s Orchid Inn on Tuesday, and the goal was to collect 181 units of blood. That goal was reached with a total 188 units of blood being donated. A number of pins were given out to Sleepy Eye donors for their accumulated blood donations as well. Those receiving pins included: Brad Berkner for 13 gallons of blood donated over the years, Joe Sellner for 12 gallons, Orlene Aarons for 11 gallons, and several other pins for 4, 2, and one gallon donations. A $50 Visa gift card drawing was held at the end of the Sleepy Eye blood drive as well, with all donors and volunteers being eligible. The winner of the gift card was Jane Fischer.
