A blood drive to benefit Vitalant on Aug. 19 at Trinity Lutheran Church helped collect a total of 67 units of blood products for patients in need.

A total of 70 individuals volunteered to donate blood, and 57 individuals were able to donate at the blood drive. Eight donors gave Power Red Cells (2RBC), which collects two units of red blood cells while returning platelets, plasma and a saline solution to the donor.

Vitalant expressed its gratitude to Donna Gullickson, who coordinated the drive, and Trinity Lutheran Church which sponsored the blood drive, as well as others who assisted the day of the drive: Erika Nahinurk, Colleen Lebahn, Jody Larson, Ardell Quigley, Marlyn Swanson, Jane Eberhardt, Ruth Urdahl and Diane Carlson.
