Blood Drive in honor

The White Horse Fire Company in Hamilton Township will hold a blood drive tomorrow, January 26th, from 3-7PM at the firehouse, 19 Locust Ave, in honor of fallen member Pfc. Eric R. Wilkus.

Pfc. Wilkus died in Iraq on Christmas Day. He was 20 years old.

Blood supplies are very short right now; this is a great way to honor a local hero as well as make a contribution to our community.

(I tried to call the fire company to confirm, since it's not on their web site and the Times of Trenton didn't put the story up online, but was unable to reach anyone. You may want to call in the evening if you want any more information.)

I corrected the date- Tomorrow is the 26th.

A friend who lives nearby can find no record of it on other blood donating sites. Maybe the Times is wrong? If anyone has any more info, let us know before we drive out there tomorrow.
