Blood center says thanks

On behalf of the U.P. Regional Blood Center and all of the patients we serve throughout the U.P., I would like to thank Mary Minetti/Our Lady of Mercy, Melissa Stein/GS Engineering and Joe Freed/Copper Country Mental Health for hosting blood drives in the month of May.

As a result of everyone’s effort we collected an outstanding 84 pints of blood.

I would also like to thank all of the volunteer blood donors for taking the time to give the “gift of life.”

Most people don’t realize that one pint can save up to three lives.

When donating blood every eight weeks you are helping to ensure someone out there will have another holiday, birthday, anniversary and continue to experience the gift of life.

Please consider giving at our Hancock location-483-1392(appointments necessary) at our next blood drive. Check our calendar on or even schedule a drive at your location by calling Sallie at 225-7132.

Thank you,

Sallie Coron,

U.P. Blood Center
