Blood Drive Saturday in Fallston

Giving blood is a great way to say "thank you" to a loved one. Philanthropist Andy Eisner went one step further - he created a blood drive to honor his mother, Sharon Miller.

Watching his mother undergo cancer treatment at Sinai Hospital left Eisner with a desire to help other patients. He worked with Garrett Caring for Kids to create a blood drive to benefit Sinai.

"Giving blood takes a little bit of your time, but it has a huge impact," Eisner says. "We know that money is tight for some people this time of year, and this is a way to give back that only requires your presence."

The blood drive will be this Saturday, December 19, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fallston Volunteer Fire Hall, 2201 Carrs Mill Road. Participants will receive a T-shirt and a donation in their honor will be made to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

To schedule your life-saving donation, e-mail Andy at johneisner65 (at) or call Lonnie at 410-671-7574.

Donors must be over age 17, healthy and at least 110 pounds. To review other donor eligibility requirements, click here.
