“We are so thankful to our loyal sponsors and volunteers for everything they do each and every day,” said Sharon Jaksa, CEO for the Great Lakes Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross.  “It is because of them that we are able to provide services for people in our communities in their times of need.”

GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police have released a sketch of a man investigators say tried to abduct a woman from her fitness club.
