Miller-Keystone Blood Center

College students are encouraged to give Miller-Keystone Blood Center an hour of their time, and a pint of blood, and they'll give you the satisfaction of knowing you have saved up to three lives; a free mini-physical; refreshments; and a chance to win an iPad.

If you haven't donated since Oct. 30, weigh at least 110 pounds, and are in general good health, you are eligible.

Miller-Keystone will be at the First United Church of Christ, next to Palmerton Borough Hall, from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 27.

To make an appointment, or for more information, email gashman@ptd.net, or phone 610-826-2097. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Miller-Keystone offers its regular blood donors the same benefits they're offering college students, plus its thanks for donating throughout the year.

The drive will be sponsored by Perma Snyder and Bernice Pastier. Sponsorship pays for additional donor refreshments and the church custodian's fee.
