Grateful to JEMS volunteers

Last week, I gave blood at the Portuguese American Citizens Club at the R.I. Blood Center drive sponsored by JEMS.

I want to thank the many members of JEMS who worked on this event. Many of the JEMS members were giving blood when I arrived, others were hosting in the refreshment area and many had clearly been working in their kitchens to provide a really wonderful spread of homemade snacks for all who participated.

JEMS volunteers contribute so much to our community every day. Their expertise, training and commitment are amazing. The blood drive is one more example of what they do to be sure that Jamestown is ready to deal with emergency health issues.

I am very grateful to every one of these volunteers. From what I hear, JEMS sponsors these blood drives often in Jamestown.

I would encourage everyone who can physically donate to do so at the next JEMS-sponsored event.

Thank you for considering.
