Faith Lutheran Church to hold 'Pint for a Pint' blood drive
Faith Lutheran Church is sponsoring the annual “Pint for a Pint” blood drive Aug. 5. All donors will receive a coupon for a free pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream.
The drive will also focus on a special “half-pint” – Janis Frnka’s 5-year-old granddaughter, Kaylee, who was diagnosed with leukemia a few months ago.
The advances in medical treatment have led to many successful outcomes in leukemia treatment for children. Along with medications, treatment depends on blood components, which are only available through blood donors.
Individuals at least 17 years old in good health and weighing at least 110 pounds (or 16 and weighing at least 121 pounds with permission from parents) are eligible to donate.
Those unable to donate can still help by praying for those in need, and asking a friend, neighbor or family member to donate.
