Morrison Thanks Blood Donors

State Representative Tom Morrison (R-Palatine) sends the following thank you to constituents and donors from his recent blood drive:

“Throughout my time in office, I’ve hosted many of these blood drives. During the last two years, work from home policies meant that there were less businesses hosting blood drives with their employees, creating a unique shortage. That shortage has only gotten worse with the recent omicron spread, which is why drives like this and those that donate are so important. I want to extend my sincerest thanks to all those who donated and continue to donate during this time. What was really impressive was how many people recognized the unique strain the blood shortage is putting on our healthcare system and stepped up. Donations collected included units from seven first time donors! Thank you again to all those who showed up and helped make such a needed impact.”
