MANCHESTER - A blood drive was held today in honor of Gail Singer, a 29-year-old who passed away from Leukemia.
Now, her family continues her legacy with the largest blood drive in New England.
The drive started in 2008 and has grown rapidly.
Today, the Gail Singer blood drive is one of the largest community blood drives in America.
Ed Ithier is a consistent donor and supports the cause every year in Gail's name.
Between Memorial Day and Labor Day there is a major dip in donations, so timing for the blood drive is vital.
Stephen Singer, the drive chairman, works hard to plan the drive during the best time of the year.
"Especially in the summer months, when people are away from their normal patterns of living. The need is greater than ever right now, every pint of blood could save three lives," Singer said.
The event is expected to bring in more than $2,000.
