Bethel Athletes Coordinate Second Blood Drive this Semester

 Bethel College will host a second community blood drive on Dec. 6 from 10:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Goodman Gymnasium. Softball player Danielle Reilly (’13) and soccer player Jon Rogers (’12) are once again coordinating this event.

"It is cool to watch Bethel's community come together in such a big way and I couldn't be happier with everyone's willingness to take part in the blood drives," says Reilly.

To schedule a donation appointment, visit www.RedCrossBlood.org and enter the sponsor code “pilots.” However, walk-ins with a form of identification are welcome! The drive is also available to the public.
