To assist local efforts to provide blood for victims of Tuesday’s terrorist attacks, the Landis Community Outreach Center will bring lunch to the appoximately 100 employees and volunteers of Miller Memorial Blood Center today. The lunches will consist of sandwiches donated by Subway on Route 248 and cookies donated by Wood Dining Services in Allentown.

According to Kate Wick, outreach center intern, the food delivery is being organized as Lafayette makes plans for a campus blood drive in the near future. Currently, Miller Memorial is not taking walk-in blood donations because of the large number of donors, according to John Hughes, executive director of the Lehigh Valley Red Cross. “They’re used to handling 200 units a day,” he explains. “The other day they took in 800 units.” Members of the Lafayette community are encouraged to call for appointments at 691-5850.
