The lobby set-up worked well, allowing plenty of open space to accommodate social distancing. The first drive was a success — 46 units of blood were donated. (Photo by Amy Tapia)

Sandia’s Community Involvement team has coordinated with Vitalant to resume on-site blood drives. Employees can check the Sandia Daily News for dates and locations of future drives. The team plans to host Sandia drives off-site as well, to better accommodate employees who are working from home.
