On May 25 and 26, there were a total of 127 donors and 30 first-time donors.
One hundred and nineteen total units of blood were collected, saving up to 357 lives!
Way to go PAs!
But the giving shouldn’t stop there. Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood, and each unit of donated blood may help save up to three lives.
