The Season of Giving

Dec 14, 2016 | April Josselyn | @apriljosselyn


The Rochester Alternative Learning Center (RALC) and the Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center joined forces yesterday to meet the needs of patients and families alike. The RALC hosted their second annual blood drive to support patients who need blood products during this busy time of the year. As a thank you, the Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center brought presents for the student donors at RALC as a “holiday gift.”

“It’s really great to see young people actively engaged in blood donation,” says Kim Schmidt a blood donation recruiter at Mayo Clinic. “Giving back to those who give blood for our patients is the least we can do to brighten their holiday spirit”.
