Woonsocket’s blood drive brings in 46 volunteers

The Woonsocket Community Club hosted a blood drive with Vitalant, formerly United Blood Services, on Dec. 18 at the Community Center, which helped collect a total of 46 units of blood for patients in need. 

A total of 46 individuals volunteered to donate blood, and 39 individuals were able to donate at the Vitalant blood drive on Dec. 18. A total of seven donors also came forward to donate Power Red Cells (2RBC), which collects two units of red blood cells while returning platelets, plasma and a saline solution back to the donor. There were three people who donated for the first time.

Vitalant expressed their gratitude to Gay Swenson, who coordinated the drive, and the Community Club which sponsored the blood drive.
