According to the Red Cross, the blood supply is extremely low due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main participants of the drive were employees and retirees of the three host organizations, according to the press release. The drive yielded 59 units of blood- enough to save 177 lives.

To ensure donor and staff safety, the Red Cross staff checked temperatures, set up stations that permitted social distancing, and wore face masks.
