The North Dakota State Hospital and James River Correctional Center hosted a blood drive with Vitalant on Nov. 24 which collected 42 units of blood products for patients in need.

Forty-one individuals volunteered to donate blood, and 36 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.

Vitalant expressed its gratitude toCindy Gee, who coordinated the drive, and NDSH Wellness Committee which sponsored the blood drive, as well as Tracy Monson, who also assisted the day of the drive.
