Robin's Nest Travel Center will host a blood drive for the Red Cross, in honor of Brandon Queen, from 1 to 7 p.m. May 30 at the Jane Lew Park Building.
Appointments to donate blood can be scheduled at www.redcross.org or by calling 304-884-7219. All donors will receive a $10 gift certificate to Robin's Nest Family Restaurant and all preregistered donors will receive a T-shirt. Walk-in donors will receive a T-shirt while supplies last. Door prizes will be given away throughout the event.
Queen was diagnosed with a rare disease called Kawasaki disease. It takes 2,000 blood donors to make one treatment for Kawasaki disease. Blood drive organizers hope his story will inspire people to donate blood. Anyone interested in learning more can search "Blood Drive in Honor of Brandon Queen" on Facebook.
