Community blood drive supports Brentwood patients

On Ground Hog Day the Brentwood “the City of Warmth” community came together for a common cause where love for one another was demonstrated. With the help of the American Red Cross staff and the families of Lilly LaMartina and Christopher Leahy a very successful blood drive was held. The donators to this drive on Thursday assisted in restocking the St Louis-area blood bank; its current levels are so low the American Red Cross has issued an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to give now and help save lives. More than 140 individuals took an hour out of their busy day and rolled up sleeves to help those in need. Not all had appointments, not all were able to give, but all do care for another. One hundred five productive units of whole blood were collected.
