Blood: The Donation That Can Save Lives

One of the biggest blood drives in this region will occur from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday at WesBanco Arena in Wheeling. It is the annual Media Day Blood Drive, sponsored by the American Red Cross.

Many area residents donate time and money to help the less fortunate. But donating blood can mean the difference between life and death for an injured or severely ill person.

Please, then, consider attending the event Monday and donating blood, if you are able to do so. If you can, you will be giving the gift of life.
