Employees, Students Donate Life-Saving Blood During Red Cross Visit


American Red Cross Bloodmobile staff work the donor tables in Penn's Inn Volunteers prepare collection bags for blood donorsNearly 150 pints of blood were collected at Wednesday’s Red Cross Bloodmobile in Penn’s Inn short of expectations, but, as every pint goes toward saving another life, a worthy effort nonetheless. Student and faculty/staff donors contributed 142 pints (112 whole-blood donations and 15 pints through the double-red-cell process) in the daylong visit. Student Health Services thanks all of those who made this event successful, and encourages the college community to donate when the Bloodmobile returns in September. Photos by Michael S.
