The American Red Cross blood drive held Tuesday (Sept. 11) was a success, said Suzan Clemens, American Red Cross donor resources field representative.

A second WVU drive will be held from noon-6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17, in the WVU Shell Building.

“We are very pleased with the tremendous response we got yesterday during our Boreman Hall blood drive,”said Suzan Clemens, American Red Cross donor resources field representative.”We gathered nearly 76 units, twice as much as our goal,”she said.”In fact, we had to turn some folks away. The American Red Cross sends out a tremendous thank you to WVU and the community who turned out to give blood. We hope we get a similar turn-out on Monday.”
