Wellness Center needs 5K, blood drive volunteers St. Thomas Newsroom September 28, 2009 The Wellness Center is looking for volunteers for two events, the Wellness 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Oct. 10, and the American Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 21-22. For the Wellness 5K, volunteers are needed between 8 and approximately 10:30 a.m. Volunteers will receive a free Wellness 5K T-shirt and can count the hours if they are needed for a club, organization or a class. Those participating in the 5K can help out before the race with registration or after the race by handing out T-shirts. For the Blood Drive, volunteers are needed between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on both Oct. 21 and 22. Shifts typically last an hour and include either checking in donors or working the canteen. Contact Maggie Herell at the Wellness Center, (651) 962-6128, if you are able to help with either event. “Your help is very much appreciated and needed,” Herell remarked.
