Bake sale at blood drive to benefit fire victim

Bethany Lutheran Church, Third Avenue and Second Street, Altoona, will sponsor a bake sale as part of a blood driveon Wednesday to help a local fire victim.

The fire occurred in the beginning of June on Seventh Avenue, Altoona.

The blood drive, which was previously scheduled, will be held from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday in the church hall.

Members of the church’s Bible study group have decided to hold a bake sale from noon to 4 p.m. that day, with all bake sale proceeds to go to the fund for the man who lost everything in the fire, including his wife.
