41 people donate at University of Jamestown blood drive
The blood drive was for Vitalant.
The University of Jamestown hosted a blood drive with Vitalant on Feb. 4 at the university which collected 53 units of blood products for patients in need.
A total of 44 individuals volunteered to donate blood, and 41 individuals were able to donate. Nine donors also gave Power Red Cells (2RBC), where two units of red blood cells are collected while returning platelets, plasma and a saline solution to the donor. Four people volunteered for the first time.
Vitalant expressed its gratitude to Julia Jenny, who coordinated the drive, Sheri Gunderson who advised the Nursing Student Association which sponsored the blood drive, and the University of Jamestown which provided the location.
