South Ogden City Blood Drive

South Ogden City recently hosted a blood drive here at City Hall. Our fire department was the main organizer of the event and in particular, Cathy Donner, who serves as the administrative assistant for the department.

Cathy has emailed me a follow-up description of the event. I'll post is here so that those that want to participate in the future will know what the plan is.

The blood drive held by the American Red Cross and sponsored by South Ogden City & Fire Dept. “was a huge, huge success! We are so grateful to South Ogden City for use of the municipal building for the blood drive” states Daralyn Wilson of the American Red Cross.

Ms. Wilson went on to say that the Red Cross fell short of their goal in July, but South Ogden City’s great turn-out really helps so much. Thanks to all of you who participated.

Special thanks to the Texas Roadhouse and the South Ogden Fire Fighters Association for donating drawing prizes!

Due to the wonderful response and many requests from citizens of South Ogden City, we will be inviting the American Red Cross back for another blood drive in January 2009. Watch for details in the December and January Newsletters.

Please feel free to contact Cathy Donner, South Ogden Fire Dept., at 622-2753 if you have any questions or would like to be contacted for the January 2009 blood drive.
