Event description

Description

In April, Nate Aller, environmental services laundry worker, was diagnosed with aplastic anemia, a blood disorder in which the body’s bone marrow stops producing enough new blood cells.

As a temporary treatment, Nate has been receiving weekly blood transfusions to balance out his red and white blood count and platelet count. Recently, he has needed mostly platelets, which uses the blood of up to five donors for each transfusion.

Blood donated through this drive could go to Nathan or to help others like Nathan in the Central PA area.

The blood donation process is simple: registration, medical history evaluation and mini-physical, donation and refreshments. The process may take a maximum of one hour and 15 minutes.

Those who attempt to donate will receive the following courtesy of the Central PA Blood Bank:

  • T-shirts

  • Field of Screams pass for 1 attraction, usable on Sundays

  • BOGO for a Papa Johns Pizza
