Wellness Center Thanks Blood Drive Participants and Volunteers

The Wellness Center would like to thank all participants and volunteers for their contributions in the American Red Cross Blood Drive held Sept 29-30.

As a result of everyone’s efforts, a total of 99 new pints of blood are available for patient care. The Wellness Center would like to remind those who haven’t had the chance to donate, and current donors, that it holds two blood drives a year (one in the fall and one in the spring), so there will be more opportunities to donate in April 2016.

Through every season, hospitals and patients rely on the American Red Cross to meet their needs for blood transfusions. The Red Cross, in turn, relies on the generosity of sponsors, volunteers and donors to support its life-saving mission.
