The 24th Annual Carolina Blood Drive

The 24th Annual Carolina Blood Drive was held at the Dean E. Smith Center on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The American Red Cross collected 784 productive units of blood that will be turned into 2,352 products. I learned that it takes 1600 units of blood DAILY for the Carolinas Region of the American Red Cross to supply the needs of hospitals. Donations are important because one unit of blood can impact as many as three patients. Thank you to all of the donors, you are sustaining the lives of the sick and injured!
