Penn College Health Services and the American Red Cross collected 229 units during this week’s two-day blood drive in memory of Michael S. Fischer, a college photographer and former member/volunteer coach of the Wildcat cross-country team. Carl J. Shaner, director of college health services, said everyone who donated Wednesday or Thursday signed a commemorative booklet that was sent to the Fischer family. The next campus Bloodmobile visit will be from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, in Penn’s Inn (Bush Campus Center, second floor).
