Alpha Opportunities hosted a blood drive with Vitalant on Jan. 23 at Alpha Opportunities which helped collect 23 units of blood products for patients in need.
Twenty-two individuals volunteered to donate blood, and 17 individuals were able to donate at the drive. Six 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. Two people volunteered for the first time.
Vitalant expressed its gratitude to Casie Hardin, who coordinated the drive, and Alpha Opportunities, which sponsored the blood drive.
