Thank you so much for the Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine blood drive on Friday, October 22. Up to three people may be able to receive help from each of the 36 pints of blood that were collected. We at the Red Cross would like to say a sincere “thank you” for each of these people who were able to have surgery, survive a serious accident or lengthen their life span.
The goal of your blood drive was 36 units. 48 potential blood donors were scheduled. Of the 46 donors who presented, 8 donors were deferred, and 16 donated for their first time.
Thanks to Pat Hutson and the generous people who volunteered to recruit donors and lend assistance at this blood drive. Also, we are grateful to all those who donated, because despite all the advances of modern medicine, without life-giving blood many people would not survive.
Thank you again for providing us the support that made this blood drive possible. You are truly appreciated.
