Many of you ask, “What good can I do?” But take a look at this personal story of saving a life…
Greetings Penn College Community. For all who continue to faithfully donate blood, I thank you. For those that are contemplating, I urge you to help out. If you have ever wondered where your blood goes, I can tell you that some of your blood goes to places like Children's Hospital of Philadelphia where my son has been treated these past months for Liver Cancer. Over the past several months, Spencer has received blood transfusions 7 different times. Without the blood he received from donors like you, he would never have made it this far. During his recent surgery he received 3 units of blood before, during, and after. In addition to whole blood, Spencer has received blood products to help keep his counts at safe levels. On behalf of my family, I thank you for donating blood today.

The Red Cross believes "the College Community is always a supportive and generous group that consistently has donors numbering 150-200. Penn College is the largest single contributor to the Red Cross in Tioga, Clinton, and Lycoming County."
