High school bloodmobile results
Thirty-four potential donors registered for the Miller-Keystone bloodmobile at Palmerton Area High School on Dec. 2, where 21 units of blood were collected.
Assisting at the high school were the following National Honor Society members: Blake Campbell, Jilian Farkas, Elizabeth Hahn, William Heinick, Lyndsey Heinrick, Amber Hettler, Brianna Hoglen, Megan Mummey, Kaitlin Reimer, Kristen Romano, Abigail Storm and Derek Szena.
The Miller-Keystone Blood Center is having a community bloodmobile visit at the First United Church of Christ, next to Palmerton Borough Hall, on Monday, Dec. 13. Registration hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
As an extra incentive, Miller is also having a drawing for a month's supply of home heating fuel. Anyone who registers to donate during December is eligible. If you make an appointment to donate (call (610) 826-2097), you will be given priority over walk-ins, although walk-ins are also welcome.
Anyone in general good health, over 17 years old (no maximum age), weighing at least 110 pounds, who has not donated whole blood in the last eight weeks, is eligible.
