Your blood is their hope!

Especially around the holidays when blood supplies are critically low. a miller keystone blood drive held at St. Luke's Lehighton Friday afternoon hit a little close to home bringing out more people to give the gift of life. 

"We actually have three local girls that are receiving blood transfusions and unfortunately are battling cancer and our Miller Keystone reps let us know about that and we told our staff about that which I really think increased our number of donors because they realized this blood is going somewhere. It's going to someone that really needs it," said Rachel Krajcrick. 

20 people were scheduled to give blood, but last minute signups and walk-ins took that number to 33 as of late afternoon. All of the blood donated stays local.
