Bethel College will host a community blood drive on Thursday, April 26 from 10:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Goodman Gymnasium. Coordinated by softball player Danielle Reilly (’13), this is the second drive on campus this spring.
“Being involved with the American Red Cross has been such an amazing experience,” says Reilly. “I have been given the chance to help in the effort to save lives. The need is always constant for blood and it is important that we make our goal [of 64 pints] for this drive.”
The blood drive is open to the public, and the Bethel College softball team is providing childcare. To make your donation appointment, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1.800.REDCROSS. Use the sponsor code “pilots.” Walk-ins are also welcome.
