We want to sincerely thank everyone who contributed to the success of the five 2011 Bonfils blood drives at CU-Boulder. There were 1,133 units of blood collected this year, a 21 percent increase over the previous two years. This translates into the availability of 3,399 blood uses for those in our community who desperately need this life-saving contribution.
A very special thanks to the Staff Council blood drive chair, Randi Viola of the ATLAS Institute, for her endless efforts in working to make blood drives the success they are today. Thanks also to many others, including the staff and directors of the UMC and Recreation Center for their venue considerations, the artists and students who do our poster advertising, the Concerned Youth of America student group that sponsors our use of student facilities and other members of Staff Council who have helped. We are proud of each donor, as donors should be of themselves.
