Fire Department Partners with American Red Cross

After the holidays, the supply of blood drops off for hospitals everywhere.  This week, the American Red Cross got a boost in their numbers in Coon Rapids.

The Coon Rapids Fire Department sponsored a blood drive on Wednesday at the Coon Rapids Civic Center.  The Red Cross welcomed walk-ins and those with appointments. Even members of the fire department stopped in to donate.

"This is our fourth time I believe sponsoring a blood drive here at Coon Rapids City Hall and our goal is obviously to get more blood for the Red Cross," says assistant fire chief Aaron Johnston.  "They’re obviously always in need of donors to give blood so we’ve been instrumental in bringing it here so it’s convenient for citizens to come to city hall during the day or early evening and donate blood.”

The fire department put a challenge out on Facebook to encourage city employees from other departments to donate blood.  If you missed this week's collection, the Coon Rapids American Legion will be holding a blood drive on Tuesday, January 14 from 12:30-6:30 p.m.
