Purposely held close to Valentine’s Day, TTI’s first blood drive of 2013 could be responsible for saving 102 lives. A total of 34 blood products were donated by TTI employees and other donors February 12. Usually a 3 to 1 return is estimated for blood donations.
“We wanted to make it fun, so we played ‘I Love Lucy’ episodes the entire day,” said Nancy Stratta, TTI Blood Drive organizer. “We also gave away a TTI red-fleece blanket in a random drawing of donors.”
That blanket was won by Michael Saenz, husband of Abbe Saenz.
The next TTI Blood Drive is scheduled for June.
