FARGO – A push by United Blood Services to get 120 people to donate blood was successful Tuesday.

Starting on Monday, employees at United Blood Services took turns donning a Santa suit and standing on the agency’s roof.

The plan was to keep Santa there until the requisite number of donations had been achieved.

That was accomplished by about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, and Santa was allowed to get to his Christmas Eve duties.

According to United Blood Services, 185 people volunteered to give blood and 160 were able to successfully donate.
