Thank you to all who came out for the Red Cross Blood Drive on November 6th! The drive was a success, and we’d love to share a message we received from Craig, a Red Cross representative:
Thank you so much for your donor recruitment and all you did to make the blood drive such a success. There was a great show rate, and the facility is just tremendous for a blood drive. Who knows? The next drive may use the whole room!
The twenty-three units collected not only exceeded the goal (in fact, we reached 121% of our goal), but may impact up to sixty-nine patients in need of blood at this time. Five of those donors were doing so for the first time, a bright prospect for future blood drives at AUMC. They may extend the impact of this blood drive far into the future!
