Maintain gift-giving spirit for January blood drive


American Red CrossPenn College Health Services and the American Red Cross will hold a two-day blood drive from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan. 21-22, in Penn’s Inn (Bush Campus Center, second floor). Besides helping to keep blood supplies ample during winter weather, when donations can be impacted by inhospitable conditions, the January visit will benefit pediatric cancer patients.

THONFor each unit of blood collected, $4 will be donated to the Four Diamonds Fund on behalf of Penn College Benefiting THON. There will also be free T-shirts and Papa John’s pizza for donors. Schedule a visit online and use the convenient RapidPass to complete the pre-donation readings and health history questions on appointment day.
