Hazelton holds blood drive

A total of 17 people volunteered to donate blood, and 12 were able to give during Hazelton’s recent blood drive.

Four people gave blood on the automated 2RBC machine which collects two units of red blood cells during the donation, so a total of 16 products were collected.

Every community and everyone within each community has a stake in an adequate blood supply. Blood will be available only because of blood drive sponsors, coordinators and volunteer donors.

Carol Humann coordinated the drive. Space to hold the drive was provided at the Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock School.

Donations will help meet the blood needs of many patients in 93 area hospitals served by United Blood Services. Blood is for sharing; you have truly given the “Gift of Life.”
