St. Andrew participates in successful blood drive

St. Andrew Lutheran Church, West Fargo, and Thrivent Financial have once again sponsored a highly successful blood drive.

According to Tonya Simenson, Donor Recruitment Representative at United Blood Services, "St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Thrivent Financial had an outstanding turnout for the drive. Out of 29 people who volunteered to donate, 26 were able to give. Four people gave blood on the automated 2RBC machine which collects two units of red blood cells during the donation, so a total of 30 products were collected."

Lavaughn Moreland coordinated the drive, and Sara Selkin helped register donors and provide refreshments.

Donations will help meet the blood needs of many patients in 71 area hospitals served by United Blood Services.
