College reaches 42 units collected at blood drive

 

blood driveCowley College recently conducted the annual American Red Cross blood drive on Tuesday, February 10 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room.

The annual blood drive had 62 people give 42 units of usable blood according to figures released by Tabitha Farley, coordinator of student health services.

Farley was pleased with the blood drive and praised the work done by the volunteers.

“Thank you so much to those of you that donated time or blood (or both) to this drive,” Farley said. “The winter storms that our neighbors on the coasts are experiencing have created a double edged sword because, not only have 11,500 donations been cancelled due to weather conditions; but also weather related illnesses and injuries have also resulted in an increased need for blood transfusions; this drive has helped decrease the deficit that occurred as a result and we thank you very much for your contributions.”

The next blood drive to be held at the college will take place at a date yet to be determined in October 2015.
