On Friday there will be a Blood Drive to honor Megan Hoogeveen. The blood drive will be on December 30th, at the Vermeer Global Pavilion. Megan was a Pella teenager who died of a rare blood disorder in June. The drive is seeking to collect over 120 units of blood, which is a little over half of what Megan received while in the hospital. The blood drive coincides with what would be Megan’s 19th birthday, and will offer free refreshments and t-shirts to all who attend. The event will be Friday December 30th, from 2:00 until 7:00 PM.
