Blood drives are set for two survivors of the Lafayette plane crash.

On January 25, there will be a blood drive for Wade Berzas, the sole surviving passenger of the plane. The drive will be from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. at St. Ann Catholic Church in Mamou. Organizers are requesting that those planning to donate call and make an appointment, so they will know how many blood trucks should be sent to the event, and also so those donating don't have to wait too long.

There's also a blood drive set for Danielle Truxillo Britt, who was not on the plane, but was severely injured when the plane crashed. For information about that drive, click here.
