Alumni and community encouraged to donate

Semiannual event replenishes
blood supply in Alle-Kiski Valley

9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, April 2, Art Gallery

Penn State New Kensington encourages blood donations from the campus, alumni and local community at the semiannual Alumni Blood Drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, April 2, in the Art Gallery.

The Central Blood Bank will collect, store and deliver the blood. Donors of all blood types from the campus and the local community are encouraged to help increase the blood supply in the Alle-Kiski Valley.
Last spring's donations totaled 42 units, second highest spring total in campus history. Appointments are not necessary as walk-ins are welcome. A free cholesterol screening is available to each donor. In addition, all donors will receive a coupon for a free Sheetz MTO sandwich.

The blood drive is made possible through the efforts of donors, canteen volunteers and Elaine Zarichnak, the campus nurse.

For information about the blood drive, contact Zarichnak at emz3@psu.edu or 724-334-6066.
