The blood drive was a routine event for those involved until one donor who had not previously set up an appointment stopped in. Russel Lein of Park River, who is over 90 years old, donated 2 pints, which equaled his ninth gallon of recorded donations with the United Blood Services. A total of 48 people volunteered to donate blood, and 45 were able to give during Park River's Feb. 1 blood drive. According to the United Blood Services, "Fifteen people gave blood on the automated 2RBC machine which collects two units of red blood cells during the donation, so a total of 60 products were collected." Katie Bartelson, Donor Recruitment Representative from United Blood Services stated, "It is not who sponsors the blood drive, but the people of Park River donating that makes the difference to patients in the hospital. You never know when a loved one or even you will need blood. We do want to thank all the people who did volunteer on Feb. 1." Lucille Thompson coordinated the drive, and the DECCA Club sponsored and assisted with recruiting donors, publicity, providing refreshments, and registering donors. Your source for Happy Happenings.
