R&S joined forces with PF Markey and Michigan Blood to help the community through a blood drive. During the drive, 20 people gave blood.
Michigan Blood was founded in 1955. It is an independent, nonprofit blood bank that provides blood for more than 60 hospitals throughout Michigan. Serving Michigan hospitals is the top priority for Michigan Blood, which collects more than 125,000 blood donations each year at nine permanent donation sites and more than 3,600 mobile blood drives statewide.
Related services available from Michigan Blood include a nationally recognized stem cell (marrow) program, therapeutic apheresis, DNA tissue-typing, transfusion medicine consultations, and Michigan’s first public cord blood bank. Michigan Blood is a member of America’s Blood Centers, a network of community blood banks spanning North America that together provide half the US blood supply.
