Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (April 9, 2013) Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) today congratulated the Legislative Services Agency (LSA) for having the most staff members donate in last Thursday’s Red Cross Blood Drive at the Statehouse.

Long asked members and staff from LSA, the House of Representatives and the Senate to participate in the annual drive in an effort to donate blood and help save lives. LSA won the friendly competition with 23 people donating, the Senate came in 2nd place with 19 people donating.

“I want to thank everyone who participated in last week’s blood drive and say how proud I am that we exceeded the amount of donations anticipated by the Red Cross,” Long said. “LSA staff members showed their dedication to helping save lives. I know my colleagues and I in the Senate certainly welcome the challenge to higher outcomes next year and continue this important and meaningful tradition.”

Red Cross estimated that 55 pints of blood were donated, helping to save 165 lives.

“On behalf of the American Red Cross and the recipients whose lives are dependent on blood and blood components, we want to say thank you to everyone who came to donate at the Statehouse last week,” said Meg Ahlering, Donor Recruitment Director of the American Red Cross. “We want to extend our sincerest gratitude to those who waited patiently and willingly to give the gift of life.”
