The American Red Cross recently ran the numbers of its Top 10 blood-collection locations in Northeastern Pennsylvania … and Penn College was at the head of the list for 2015.  A total of 799 units was donated on campus last year; Bloomsburg and Lock Haven universities were second and third at 695 and 534 pints, respectively. In a related report, College Health Services said 49 units – with the potential to save 147 lives – were collected during a June 15 mini-visit to the Bush Campus Center.
