The North Dakota State Hospital and James River Correctional Center hosted a blood drive with Vitalant on March 15 which collected 41 units of blood products for patients in need.

There were 42 individuals who volunteered to donate blood, and 36 individuals were able to donate at the drive. Six donors gave Power Red Cells, where two units of red blood cells are collected while returning platelets, plasma and a saline solution to the donor.

Three people volunteered for the first time.
Vitalant expressed its gratitude to Cindy Sperle-Gee, who coordinated the drive, the NDSH Wellness Committee which sponsored the blood drive, and NDSH/JRCC, which provided the location as well as Tracy Monson, who assisted the day of the drive.
