MARTINSBURG – Donna Block wishes she could clone Betsy Wineland.
Wineland, 45, of Martinsburg is always willing to help the American Red Cross secure blood donations – in particular, platelet donations.
Wineland, who started donating whole blood in the early 1990s when her nephew Joe Baker was serving in Operation Desert Storm, has been a regular platelet donor since November 2005. . .
. . . Wineland wishes more people would get involved with blood and platelet donations.
“There is always someone less fortunate. We all have something we can give or do to make someone else’s day better,” said Wineland, who also is an active member of the Hopewell Grace Brethren Church.
