We had another successful lifesaving blood and platelet drive on April 28th!
We registered 81 participants. The following is the breakdown of donations:
- Whole blood donations - registered 76 people and collected 67 pints of blood (red cells)
- Platelet donations - registered 5 people and collected one double platelet and 4 single platelets with a red cell.
- Red cells from whole blood donations/ 67plus red cells from the platelet donations/4 = 71
The blood drive goal was to collect 68 pints of blood so we are pleased with the results.
