Blood drive

The Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College on Wednesday, Nov. 28 hosted the American Red Cross Blood Drive in the gymnasium. A total of 68 blood donors participated. The Student Senate helps coordinate and recruit. Many CLC students and some staff generally take time to contribute to this worthy cause. Among those taking about an hour of their day to donate a pint was Rachel Lindholm Hatfield, 19, of Brainerd. She said the process was virtually
painless. Red Cross Phlebotomist Brenda Koyer of Alexandria concurred, and did her best to
ease any pain. “I don’t like needles, but this isn’t bad at all,” said
Hatfield, a first-time donor. She and husband Tim are earning their Associate in
Arts degrees from CLC.
