ELLSWORTH — VFW Post 109’s Auxiliary has been named a Gold Level participant in the American Red Cross’s Life Share program.
Life Share works to ensure an adequate blood supply year round. The VFW Auxiliary was honored for its record of hosting blood drives. A blood donation event in February yielded 49 units.
The Auxiliary also supports area youth. The organization provides scholarships to graduating seniors from Ellsworth and Sumner Memorial high schools and contributed to the effort to send Sumner cheerleaders to the New England Regionals in Rhode Island.
