MedBen will host an American Red Cross blood drive on Thursday, March 5, from 9:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the C. Arthur Morrow Conference Center, 1821 W. Main Street in Newark, Ohio. The blood drive is open to the public — you can sign up at the ARC website or just drop in.

Never donated because you’ve got needle anxiety? New research suggests that blood drawn for the purpose of aiding other people helps to alleviate the discomfort you may otherwise feel… and that applies to other selfless acts as well.

So if you’re in the area and have a few minutes to do a good deed, please stop by and help out a worthy cause!
