Two-day blood drive to benefit THON


Campus blood drive scheduled Jan. 15-16Members of the Penn College community are encouraged to contribute life-saving blood during this month’s collection for the American Red Cross. Online appointments are available for the visit, scheduled from noon-6 p.m. Jan. 15-16 in Penn’s Inn (Bush Campus Center, second floor). Pediatric cancer patients also will be helped by the two-day drive, as $4 will be donated to the Four Diamonds Fund on behalf of Penn College Benefiting THON for each unit of blood collected. College Health Services will provide special T-shirts to successful donors, and director Carl L. Shaner – noting the snowy disruption of a November Bloodmobile – has “fingers crossed that the weather is good!” The specter of winter looms large over the Red Cross’s collection efforts, as the need for donors doesn’t get a snow day. Weather-related Bloodmobile cancellations add to a shortage that has already hit emergency levels, so faculty/staff and students are urged to consider rolling up their sleeves.
