Susquehanna Bank Cherryville hosting blood drive

Published December 28. 2009 05:00PM

Susquehanna Bank, 765 Blue Mountain Road, Cherryville, will be hosting a blood drive from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 6."Our regional hospitals require over 450 units of blood daily to care for their patients, which include premature infants, accident and burn victims, and cancer patients," explains Suzan Detwiler, donor resources representative. "Therefore, it is vital that blood used today be replaced today to maintain a safe, stable and constant blood supply in our community. We encourage all eligible blood donors to support a vital community service by donating at this drive." Individuals registering to donate at this blood drive, or at any MKBC community blood drive or donor center during the month of January, can also enter a raffle to have their next (residential) heating bill paid for by the Blood Center!
