Lima Senior High School will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive from 8:30 a.m.to 2:30 p.m. February 23 in the school's auxiliary gymnasium.
"Everyone's donation was absolutely vital for this emergency blood appeal that the American Red Cross is going through right now", Gundersen said. "He also got a blood transfusion him when he had spinal surgery and I have looked in the eyes of so many people who have lost everything during disasters and frankly, it's a privilege to be able to help them as well".
