Submitted story



Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati, has released its Best of 2017 list of top-performing blood drives hosted by businesses, universities, high schools and hospitals, and several local entities are on the list.

“In order to collect necessary blood products, Hoxworth relies on local organizations to host regular blood drives throughout the year and assist with recruiting donors,” said Alecia Lipton, Hoxworth spokesperson. “Without the determination and giving spirit of these organizations and donors, we would have a hard time supporting patients in area hospitals in need of blood.”
