MANCHESTER — The 33rd Annual Gail Singer Blood Drive collected 1,510 pints of lifesaving blood after passing the goal of 1,361. This is the third largest total number in the 33 year history of this blood drive.
The blood drive is held annually in honor of Gail Singer, a 29-year-old who passed away from Leukemia. Gail passed away in 1984.
Today, the Gail Singer blood drive is one of the largest community blood drives in America.
NH1's Charlie Sherman and Ryan Breton were at the event giving blood exploring the many other activities they offer.
From face painting, to balloon animals, they had everything you wouldn't expect at blood drive. They offered free food and merchandise, too.
"This is truly amazing and speaks to the strong support of New Hampshire blood donors," said Mary Brant, external communications manager for the event.
