An American Red Cross Blood Drive for the Ligonier area is coming up on March 5. It will be held at St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church. The hours are from 12 noon until 5:30 p.m. The need for blood is always critical at this time of year, as the winter weather and seasonal illnesses typically result in a drop in donations. Please share the gift of life! Walk in donors are welcome, but appointments always are helpful. If you are a regular donor, register through your online account. If not, call Pastor Paul Poerschke at 724-238-2708 for assistance in registering.
