Blood Drive to benefit THON, Nov. 12 at Penn State DuBois

DUBOIS, Pa. — The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, in the Multipurpose Building Gymnasium at Penn State DuBois. For each person who donates, the Red Cross will make a $2 donation to Penn State DuBois Benefiting THON.

The largest student-run philanthropy in the world, engaging more than 15,000 students across Pennsylvania, THON has raised $157 million for Four Diamonds since its inception in 1977. The event's sole beneficiary, and a leader in the fight against pediatric cancer, Four Diamonds helps fill in the funding gaps that insurance leaves for the patients it serves, enabling families to focus on caring for their child. Because of large donors like THON, Penn State Hershey Hospital recruits world-class talent to continue innovative research, and to maintain and expand the state-of-the-art Children’s Hospital.
