Emily blood drive successful


January is the official National Blood Donor Month, and on Monday, Jan. 13, at the Emily Area Blood Drive, there was steady flow of donors who donated blood to help save lives of people they may never meet. A total of 105 pints were collected at the new Emily City Hall blood drive site. Due to the harsh cold winter months and flu season, several Minnesota blood drives have been cancelled, setting the state back by 70,000 units of blood.
