Betterment of others
On Dec. 17 the Rutland Area will again host the Gift of Life Marathon. This represents what is so good about the Rutland community, the willingness to give of oneself for the betterment of others.
The need for blood at the holiday season is so important. The chance to give a little of your time to donate to potentially save a life is in the spirit of the Rutland community. I urge you to consider donating blood to make a difference in your community and beyond. This drive is again looking to set a record for donors, sign up today by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS to make an appointment. Be part of making Rutland an example for others to follow.
