Published January 15. 2010 05:00PM

St. Luke's Miners Memorial Hospital, 360 W. Ruddle Street, Coaldale, will be hosting a Miller-Keystone blood drive on from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 27.

"Our regional hospitals require more than 450 units of blood daily to care for their patients, which include premature infants, accident and burn victims, and cancer patients," explains Marie D'Amato, 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!

In order to donate, individuals must be 17 years of age or older, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be feeling healthy; they must not have donated in the past eight weeks.

All donors must also provide valid identification; ID must have the donor's name printed on it, as well as a photo and/or signature. Walk-ins are welcome at this blood drive.

For more information or to preregister for donation, call Bill Paslawsky at (570) 645-8222.
