Blood drive on Friday part of Eagle project


Follow The Republic:


A blood drive on behalf of Conner’s Crusade will be from 2 to 6 p.m. Friday at the Walmart Supercenter, 735 Whitfield Drive.

Kevin Bernier is organizing the event as his Eagle Scout Project with Troop 209 in Edinburgh.

Conner’s Crusade is about a family friend of Bernier’s who has received 12 blood transfusions during a 10-month treatment for Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare childhood bone cancer.

Bernier’s project includes organizing the blood drive and collecting care package items to deliver to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital oncology department in Indianapolis.

Bernier also asks that anyone giving blood at another location let him know the donation was made on behalf of Conner. If that occurs, email Kevincaresforkids@yahoo.com so that Bernier may have an accurate count of how many people gave blood in honor of Conner.

Don't settle for a preview.
