Bethany to host blood drive

BETHANY - Due to diminished blood collection over the winter season, Bethany College's Pre-Health Professions Club will team with the American Red Cross River Valley Chapter to host a Cycle of Love blood drive from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the college's Benedum Commons.

Recent weather conditions, cold temperatures and widespread flu nationwide have forced the cancellation of many blood drives within the community and across the country, said Red Cross officials.

Area residents can celebrate Valentine's Day early by coming out to donate and help save the lives of others. All donors will be entered to win a Sheetz gift card.
