The blood drive was held Saturday in Penfield at the YMCA. The goal was to collect 50 pints of blood. Organizers said there is a strong need for blood and the turnout on Saturday was a tremendous help.
“Being in the midst of going into summer, there is always an increased need for blood supply,” district manager at American Red Cross Debra Dunn said. “We’ve had a great turnout today from the community, friends, family, neighbors coming out to honor Gary’s memory.”
