The University of Jamestown hosted a blood drive with Vitalant on Dec. 2 at Reiland Fine Arts Center which collected 22 units of blood products for patients in need.
Twenty-five individuals volunteered to donate blood and 20 individuals were able to donate. Two 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. Eight people volunteered for the first time.
Vitalant expressed its gratitude to Mackenzie Wertz, who coordinated the drive, and Students of Service which sponsored the blood drive, as well as others who assisted the day of the drive: Dr. Candace Adams, Shannon Bryn, Amber Domres, Wesley Kemp, Rae Critchley, Cass Dragt, Emily Anderson and Jenalee Reynolds.
