Blood Drive - Your Help is Needed

Christopher Fereno, a BASD Student and a Life Scout with Boy Scout Troop 317 in Bethlehem is coordinating a blood drive on March 19th as his Eagle Scout project and he is asking for your help. His goal is to collect 100 units of blood in support of the daughter of one of his BASD teachers and a teacher he had in the BASD.

In order to collect a total of 100 units by March 19th, he needs donors to give blood now and then again at the drive on March 19th. The blood drive will be held at First Baptist church on Linden Street in Bethlehem. Red blood cells can be given every 56 days and platelets can be given every 8 days. If you give red blood cells before January 22, 2016, you will be able to give again at the blood drive on March 19th. There is an 8 day waiting period between giving platelets and red blood cells.

Miller Keystone has 2 locations in our area. One is in Bethlehem at 1465 Valley Center Parkway, and the other one is in Easton at 2925 William Penn Highway, #105. When going to donate at one of those locations, please either give his name or his specific donor ID# which is 7745. This will ensure that your donation is credited to his Eagle Scout project.

Thank you in advance for helping me with Christopher's Eagle Scout project and for helping to save the lives of cancer patients, premature babies, and accident victims in the Lehigh Valley.
