Mi Salon & Spa in Florence, Ky., joined forces with Hoxworth Blood Center in July in order to help increase the supply of blood donations in the Greater Cincinnati area. Blood banks typically see a decline in the number of donations they receive during the summer months. In an attempt to help raise awareness Mi Salon & Spa hosted a mobile blood donation unit for two days in its parking lot.

“Over the course of those two days, through the efforts of our clients and staff, we were able to collect 114 units of blood,” says salon general manager Melissa Graus. “That amount of blood will be able to positively impact 333 people throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.”

As a thank you to everyone who donated, Mi Salon & Spa held a drawing for a $50 and $400 gift certificate.
