Cheryl Luger suggested the Greencastle Rescue Hose Co. host a blood drive after she heard Franklin County Commissioner Bob Thomas' story on the radio, she said. Thomas was diagnosed earlier this year with aplasic anemia, a blood disorder that severely lowers his white blood cell count making him very susceptible to infection. Watching dozens of people come to give the blood that Thomas now needs to live overwhelmed him, he said. Many people like Dave and Stacie Wolfe of Greencastle came to donate for the first time because of Thomas' story.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - A bloodmobile will be held from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Storer Ballroom of the college center at Shepherd College.

Types O positive and O negative are especially needed. Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 105 pounds and have waited eight weeks since their last donation.

For 15 years, Jack Duffey has welcomed blood donors to American Legion Post 15 and thanked them by offering what he describes as “more than crackers and orange juice.” Six times a year, the post on East Main Street holds an American Red Cross community blood drive. Its donors can help themselves to free meals like ham or chicken-salad sandwiches. “After that many years, you're on a first-name basis with a lot of them,” Duffey said. Duffey, 80, is passing on the responsibility of organizing the blood drives to Bernie McGarity and John Ingels.
