Blood Challenge Brought Community Members Together


Lansing, MI- The Northern Team staff wrapped up the summer Battle of the Banks blood challenge in northern Michigan last month.  The special blood drives promoted a friendly competition between several banks and their supporting communities including 10 credit unions and 43 branches.

This year's blood challenge collected 887 units of blood with the potential to save 2661 lives.  The winning bank is HPC who collected 91 units of blood total.

Thank you northern banks and community members for coming together to help save lives through blood donation, this year’s bank battle was another success!
