Nearly 200 pints of blood were donated at the American Red Cross drive held Wednesday and Thursday, exceeding the 190-pint goal for the campus collection. "When you made the decision to give a lifesaving blood donation, you helped save lives," the Red Cross told participants in a follow-up email. "By giving during the summer months, a time when fewer people donate, you've helped make sure lifesaving blood is available for the patients who need it – thank you!" Carl L. Shaner, director of College Health Services, said 199 pints were collected; the Red Cross had hoped for 95 pints on each of the two days. The next Penn College blood drive will be from noon to 6 p.m. Nov. 4-5 in Penn's Inn (Bush Campus Center, second floor).
