College reaches 44 units collected at blood drive

 

blood driveCowley College recently conducted the annual American Red Cross blood drive on Thursday, Oct. 2 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room.

The annual blood drive had 56 people give 44 units of usable blood according to figures released by Tabitha Farley, coordinator of student health services. Even with some technical difficulties with the American Red Cross computer system which led to some delays, Farley was pleased with the blood drive and praised the work done by the volunteers.

“I would like to thank everyone for their patience during the blood drive and I appreciate them donating their time and blood, especially the first time donors and volunteers,” Farley said. “We could not have done it without them.”

The next blood drive to be held at the college will take place at a date yet to be determined in March 2015.
Every two seconds someone receives a unit of blood. The need is constant. It is the American Red Cross’s goal to meet that need through voluntary donations.
