Blood Drive in Reading to help with local shortage

On Tuesday, March 16th and Wednesday, March 17th, an emergency blood drive sponsored by Berks Women Inspiring Women and Miller Keystone Blood Center will take place at the Olivet Boys & Girls Club Pendora Club from 10am to 3pm.

Donations of blood save lives and this community event comes at a time when Berks County faces a critical shortage of blood.

Members of the community are encouraged to consider making a blood donation as appointment spots are still available on both days.

Appointments must be made in advance and individuals can sign up by contacting Diana Schaeffer at 484-755-2305 or visiting with sponsor code 8716.
