For the second year in a row, the Langley City fire hall will hold a blood drive in memory of fallen firefighter Ron Dunkley on Thursday, Dec. 13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The fire hall will accept non-perishable food items and Frosting Cupcakery is providing mini cupcakes.

Canadian Blood Services will be holding its annual Bleed and Feed drive at several Langley locations as well.

The goal, in partnership with food banks in B.C., is to fulfill 14,000 holiday miracles in B.C., while also feeding the hungry.

Each donor is asked to bring a non-perishable food item.

“Unfortunately, the need for blood never takes a  holiday and neither does hunger,” said Ed Yee, director of donor and clinic services for B.C.
