The Central Blood Bank will host a blood drive from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Clearview Mall in Butler in honor of Adam Snow, the Butler County teen who underwent a life-saving liver transplant Nov. 10.

The family of Snow, 14, a ninth-grader at Butler Area Intermediate High school, made a desperate plea Nov. 9 for a healthy liver after doctors said he had days to live. Within hours, Snow found a match and underwent surgery. He now is home in Butler.

The blood bank said the drive will replenish the community blood supply that aided Snow during surgery. The drive will take place next to the Sears department store in the mall.

To schedule a blood donation, go to www.centralbloodbank.org, and use sponsor code ZRTN0981, or contact Christopher Snow at dj@stoneycreekproductions.com. Walk-ins are welcome.
