We're still in the beginning stages of forming our CERT, and donations from the soup supper will go a long way to getting us off the ground.

There is a severe nationwide blood shortage that is impacting our community. According to the American Red Cross:
➡️ Every 2 second someone in the U.S. needs blood and/or platelets
➡️ A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 units of blood
➡️ One blood donation can help save more than one life

How can you help?
✔️ Donate blood. Find a blood drive near you www.redcrossblood.org/
✔️ Drive safely to avoid accidents
✔️ Until the shortage is over, avoid recreational activities that could result in injuries with significant blood loss (woodworking, climbing ladders, extreme contact sports or activities)
✔️ If you are on blood thinners, take extra precautions to avoid injury
✔️ Volunteer to help at a community blood drive

Today at NMC Health, several people volunteered to help by donating. Shelly Huffman (photographed) was one of the donors.

“It’s the least I can do, it’s something I have control over in a situation I have no control, like a pandemic," she said as she donated. Shelly heard about the blood shortage and her first thought was stepping up and donating.

"I would think that if I needed it I would want it to be there for me."

If you can donate, please do. If you can't donate, please be an advocate for blood donations. In an emergency situation, ever little bit helps.

New Year's resolutions can be tough. Maybe you're wanting to volunteer more, get involved in the community, be a little more active. We'd love for you to consider volunteering for the Harvey County Sheriff's Office Reserve Unit.

Our reserves fill the same roles as a regular deputy - same vehicle, same clothes, same authority - but they give freely of their time. These men and women help out during busy weekend shifts and for big events like the Harvey County Free Fair. It takes a lot of resources to cover a whole county or event, and we're grateful these folks share some of the duties.

Mark Scheffler is the captain of our reserves, and he's always glad to find a few new recruits. If you want to learn more, call 316-284-6960.New Year's resolutions can be tough.
