State police to hold blood drive in honor of injured trooper

Wednesday 10am-3pm, Troop M barracks in Bethlehem

Pennsylvania State Police are holding a blood drive in honor of the trooper injured in a shooting last week.

Miller-Keystone Blood Center will hold the blood drive at the Troop M barracks in Bethlehem from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday.

Miller-Keystone said all slots are full for Wednesday, but those wishing to donate can go to the blood center on Valley Center Parkway in Bethlehem.

Cpl. Seth Kelly was wounded after a traffic stop turned into a shootout in Northampton County on November 7.

He is recovering from several gunshot wounds in the hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Police said they are holding the blood drive to make sure others can get blood when they need it, just like Cpl. Kelly did.

The alleged shooter, Daniel Clary, 22, was also wounded. He has since been released from the hospital and is in Northampton County Prison facing attempted homicide and related charges.

To schedule an appointment, email Sgt. Pat O'Malley at joomalley@pa.gov.
