Thirty-four units of blood were collected today in a Mississippi Valley Blood Center blood drive sponsored by the Compassion Club.  About half of them were given by IMS students or staff. While most of the donors have given before, there were five first time donors. Each whole blood donation can produce as many as four different blood components which means over 100 patients will benefit from the blood collected today.
