2ND BLOOD DRIVE WAS A SUCCESS!
Thank you so much for the out pouring of generosity shown by so many on our campus on behalf of our own Brittany Mirick and others in life-threatening situations who need blood.
At our first drive on August 26th, we had 56 presenting donors(incredible!!) and 36 successful donations. That is really great especially considering the delayed start due to the change in location.
Yesterday’s drive was also very successful. Although I don’t have all the stats yet from the American Red Cross, they were able to confirm for me that we had 24 successful donations.
That means that together we contributed 60 pints of whole blood to the blood bank from which Brittany and others are drawing the blood needed for ongoing treatment and life-saving operations.
Thanks to all who supported either blood drive and thanks to you all for your thoughts and prayers for Brittany and her Family!
