The Reading Fightin Phils have generously adopted Thursday, June 11 to host a Blood Drive at MKBC’s Reading Donor Center. Thanks to FirstEnergy the Fightin’s are proud to help out Miller-Keystone Blood Center in the community.

The blood drive will be located at MKBC’s Donor Center, 2745A Leiscz’s Bridge Road. For GPS purposes please use 1047 Old Bernville Road.

The R-Phils are excited to assist Miller-Keystone Blood Center to support a great cause. The Fightin’s and FirstEnergy encourage all fans to schedule an appointment for the blood drive and promote and share this opportunity with friends and family.

Miller-Keystone Blood Center reminds citizens that as hospitals resume elective surgeries, the daily transfusion needs of these organizations is increasing. As a result, our community blood supply is in need of donors of all blood types.

This includes a critical need for O-negative blood donors. O-negative donors are referred to as “Universal Blood Donors” because the blood of an O-negative donor can be transfused to anyone, regardless of blood type. This is especially important in trauma cases, where there may not be time to confirm a victim’s blood type. Schedule your lifesaving donation today.

We need your support!
