To the editor:
On behalf of the U.P. Regional Blood Center, I would like to thank Christina Asiala- Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital, Mia Moilanen-Michigan Tech Credit Union and Courtney Babcock-OHM Advisors for hosting a blood drive in the month of October. As a result of her efforts we collected an outstanding 44 pints of blood. I would also like to thank all the community members who took the time to give the “gift of life.” The blood donated with the U.P. Regional Blood Center stays here in the Upper Peninsula. It is used to supply your community hospital and 12 other hospitals across the U.P. Thank you for supporting your community blood center.
