Gift of Blood Drive
For a snow-bound workday afternoon, January 26th, the Gift of Life Blood Drive co-sponsored by the HPNA & Hamilton Park Condominiums on 9th Street was a success. Out of 21 presenters, we collected 15 units of blood.
Because of the extreme weather conditions this winter, many blood drives had been cancelled and there was a critical shortage of supplies to local hospitals.
We thank all those who came out for this event.
