Thank you for gifts of life

To the editor:

On behalf of the U.P. Regional Blood Center I would like to thank the following volunteer coordinators for hosting blood drives in the month of November: Patrice Lompre-Finlandia University, Pre-Health Association-Michigan Tech. University, Mary Markham-Chassell High School and Joe Heflin-Calumet Senior High School. As a result of their efforts we collected an outstanding 111 pints of blood. I would also like to thank all the community members who took the time to give the “gift of life.” Thank you for supporting your community blood center.
