Athletes Coordinate Blood Drive on Campus

Bethel College will host a community blood drive Thursday, April 25 from 10:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Goodman Gymnasium.

James Agler (’14) is an athletic coordinator in this event along with the American Red Cross and his teammates. Agler is a member of the Bethel track and field team.

“The blood drive is important because it connects us to the community. It also gives you a chance to literally give a little bit of yourself to help others. Jesus gave all of His blood to save the world; we can at least give a little to save three lives,” says Agler.

Walk-ins are welcome; just bring a form of identification. For more information, visit
