SHOUT OUT: The Oradell Volunteer Fire Department is holding a blood drive in two weeks for Wallington Firefighter John Barnas in his battle against leukemia.
The department, which has close ties to its Wallington colleagues, will host the drive from 1-7 p.m. Saturday, March 29 at the Oradell firehouse.
Althoug Barnas needs O+ (pos) and O- (neg) “all blood donations will be accepted and are needed to keep the blood supply stocked,” the department said.
Barnas’s father, Gregory, died in a Wallington restaurant fire late last month. He had been donating blood cells for John — who, with his brother, Kevin, are both firefighters — as he undergoes chemotherapy.
