LEHIGH VALLEY, PA – Hobby Lobby, 3750 Easton Nazareth Highway, Easton, will be hosting a blood drive on Saturday, April 23.  The blood drive is being sponsored in conjunction with Miller-Keystone Blood Center – exclusive blood supplier to our regional hospitals – and will be held from 11am-3:40pm.  

“Our regional hospitals require over 450 units of blood daily to care for their patients, which include premature infants, accident and burn victims, and cancer patients,” explains Suzan Detwiler, Donor Resources Representative. “Therefore, it is vital that blood used today be replaced today, so that it is available for the next person in need.”

In order to donate blood, individuals must be 17 years of age or older, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be feeling healthy; they must not have donated in the past eight weeks. All donors must also provide valid identification; ID must have the donor’s name printed on it, as well as a photo and/or signature.

For more information or to pre-register for donation, call Sally Santi at 610-258-8678.
