Blood Drive in Memory of Zach Cupp Saturday

For the ninth consecutive year the American Red Cross is teaming up with family and friends and Marceline Fire and Rescue to host a blood drive in memory of Zach Cupp. In August 2012, Zach Cupp was only 17 years old when he was killed in a car accident. After the crash, he received several pints of blood during surgery. Zach’s parents, Matt and Laurie Cupp, have organized this annual blood drive in his memory the last eight years as a way of giving back to the community. They hope the efforts of drawing awareness to blood donations inspires others to donate for patients in need. 1,180 blood donations have been collected over the past several years. You can join this effort during the blood drive which is tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Walsworth Community Center, in Marceline.
