(14:30 - 30:00)  Laura Ryan joins Marcy to discuss the critical level of need for blood donations in our area. The Miller Keystone Blood Center is a Pittston-based nonprofit that accepts donations of blood, plasma and platelets to deliver to hospitals right here in NEPA! Donations are usually lowest during the summer months, and considering most donors are aged 55+ many blood banks are urging younger generations to get involved and start donating blood today! The Miller-Keystone Blood Center is hosting several blood drives during the month of May: You can donate now - May 17th with for a chance to win tickets to see the RailRiders, supported by the Swoyersville and Pittston Little Leagues. Or if you donate anytime during the month of May you can win tickets to see Brooks & Dunn or comedian Nate Bargatze! Not sure if you're able to donate? The FTC has loosened restrictions over the years, and Miller-Keystone can help you determine if your eligible! Head to GiveAPint.org to learn more, and follow along on social!
