Hermann Area District Hospital Auxilliary October Blood Drive

Article Date: October 13, 2014


Thanks to everyone who donated blood at The American Red Cross blood drive on October 9, 2014.  The drive was sponsored by Hermann Area District Hospital Auxiliary and held at People’s Savings Bank - Rhineland where 40 pints of blood were collected.  Each pint of blood can be divided into three components—red cells, platelets and plasma—giving our blood drive the possibility of impacting 120 lives.  While it is impossible at the time of donation to know how that specific donation will be used, there are more uses for blood than many people realize. Thanks again to those of you who gave a part of yourself to help patients in need.


A thank you goes out to the following people, businesses, and organizations; St. Ann Ladies Sodality from Church of the Risen Savior in Rhineland for providing homemade cookies.  The HADH Auxiliary members Margaret Gosen, Alice Lefholz, and Gayle Horn for serving refreshments; Hermann Subway for providing lunch for the Red Cross staff and the People Saving Bank Branch in Rhineland for allowing us to hold it at their facility.

Below are the people who came out to donate.  Janet Hart, Tim McCormack, Keva Limberg,
