Raising funds during blood drive
OGDENSBURG, New York (WWNY) - Two St. Lawrence county organizations are teaming up to take on hunger while helping to save lives.
The Red Cross hosted a blood drive Thursday at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center.
The event raised money for the Ogdensburg Neighborhood Center.
Organizers said $300 would be donated to the group if it got 30 people to give blood. For each additional person, they would tack on an extra $10.
Organizers say they had 42 people sign up even before the doors even opened.
Donors were also asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the center for donation.
