BLOOD DRIVE TO INCLUDE RAFFLES: A blood drive will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Grace Fellowship Church's cafe, 2150 Niles Cortland Road, Warren. The blood drive is a service learning project in English class for Zachary Miner, a senior at Howland High School. Two raffle tickets will be awarded with each donation which includes various prizes such as basket raffles, a frozen drink party machine rental, one-week rental vacation in Sheraton Visitana Resort in Orlando, Fla., and other items. Those who donate today through Friday will receive a coupon and sample brick of Dunkin Donuts coffee. For other area blood drives, visit www.redcrossblood.org or call 800-733-2767. Miner is sponsoring the blood drive and has worked with the American Red Cross. The service effort is a way to teach youths about giving back to the community.
