Blood Donors Needed!

Miller-Keystone Blood Center has issued an urgent appeal for donors of all Blood types and platelets. “Blood donations traditionally decrease during the summer months due to family vacations and high schools/colleges being on break,” explained Deb Otto, Director of Donor Resources. “These factors, combined with several critical traumas that have occurred in our region over the past few days, have significantly impacted our community’s Blood supply.”

 

“The ideal Blood inventory on our shelves should be a three-day supply, or approximately 1500 units,” she notes. “At this time, we are only at about 700 units, which is less than half of our desired inventory level.” “More than 450 donors are needed every day in our community to help in the care of cancer patients, accident victims, premature infants and others in need of life-saving transfusions at our regional hospitals," adds Sean Tinney, Director of Marketing & Business Development. “While we’ve had a decrease in the number of people donating, the demand at our hospitals remains steady. We would just like to remind people that Blood cannot be manufactured, it can only come from the kind generosity of volunteer Blood donors. If there was ever a time to
donate, now is that time.”

 

It can take up to 50 units of Blood to help someone in a car accident, and up to 8 units to help someone with internal bleeding. It can also take up to 8 units a week to help someone battling leukemia. In order to donate, individuals must be 17 years of age or older, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be feeling healthy; they must not have donated in the past eight weeks. All donors must also provide valid identification; ID must have the donor’s name printed on it, as well as a photo and/or signature. For more information or to schedule a donation, call 1-800-B-A-DONOR (223-6667). Donors can also visit GIVEaPINT.org to schedule an appointment online or find a Blood Drive in their community.

2016 Bright Future Campaign

The non-profit State Theatre Center for the Arts in Easton announces the 2016 Year End Giving Campaign -– reaching out to the community for donations that will support a “green” project that includes an LED conversion for our main theatre hall and stage area (including the beautiful chandelier) and exterior security lights. The project will potentially save up to 80% per year in energy costs, thanks to highly efficient LED bulbs that last 10 times longer than our current incandescent bulbs, and at the same time will enrich the quality of the performances that patrons have come to expect.

 

“Lighting is important in every aspect of show business, and the amount of light bulbs we use in our facility is huge,” comments President & CEO Shelley Brown.  “We are always looking for ways to lower operating costs and be environmentally friendly.  We have found LED lights and a dimmer system that will help us maintain our luster and accomplish those goals.  Our community has helped us keep our historic building in great shape.  This is one more very special way to help.”

 

The goal for the 2016 Bright Future Campaign is $40,000.

 

As part of the State Theatre’s 90 Years of WOW celebration, community members who contribute $90 or more by December 21, will be able to see their name in lights on the State Theatre marquee the week of December 24-January 1.

 

Tax Deductible Contributions can be made to: State Theatre Bright Future Campaign, 453 Northampton Street, Easton, PA 18042 or online at www.statetheatre.org

 

Past successful campaigns have resulted in improvements to the historic theatre’s curtain, roof and interior plaster.
