Tel Hai’s annual blood drive will be held in the community’s chapel on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 between the hours of 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. The Miller-Keystone Blood Center, an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1971 will be the coordinating agency. As members of America’s Blood Centers (ABC)—a national network of independent nonprofit blood centers—they serve as the blood products provider for several local hospitals including Brandywine Hospital, Phoenixville Hospital, the Reading Health System and St. Joseph Medical Center. Their mission, to save lives by partnering with local communities to provide a continuous supply of blood products and services, in summed up in their tag line—“Your Blood. Their Hope.”
Every pint of blood donated has the potential to help up to four people. Why not contribute and make a difference in your community? Cholesterol checks will be conducted for all those donating at Tel Hai on January 20; test results will be forwarded to the donor by mail.
