Over twenty people participated in the first Minnesota Atheists Blood Drive on Saturday, May 31st at Memorial Blood Centers in St. Paul’s Midway. Memorial welcomed us with a sign, balloons, a cake, and plenty of other snacks. After eating our dessert, most of us trekked down University Avenue to the Leaning Tower of Pizza to celebrate our two-gallon deposit.
