MADISON (WKOW) -- Dozens of people stopped by UW-Madison's Memorial Library to donate blood in honor of longtime UW Libraries employee, Maureen Grant.
Grant died last June after being hit by a bus while walking across University Avenue.
Colleagues remember her as a vibrant, passionate and inquisitive individual with contagious optimism.
"Because of her interest in helping others through blood donation, it just seemed like a pretty good fit for us to recognize her in this manner," said UW Libraries Interim Director Ed Van Gemert.
Grant was a regular blood donor in Madison and in her hometown of New Glarus.
The American Red Cross says the need for blood is constant and 21,000 times a day someone receives a transfusion from a Red Cross donor.
