We need your help!
Blood drives across the nation have been canceled due to business and school closures. However, churches are currently on the PA list of "life-sustaining" exceptions to the closures. Blood supplies are running critically low, so in response to this shortage, we have scheduled a blood drive for Tuesday, March 31st, from 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM in the church lobby.
*Please note - The blood drive for 3/31/20 is currently filled. visit the red cross website at redcrossblood.org for updates in the event of additional appointments, cancellations, or information about alternative donATION sites. thank you!
The following message has been provided by the Red Cross regarding precautionary measures in light of covid-19:
To ensure blood drives and donation centers are even safer for our donors, staff and volunteers, the following new measures have been implemented at blood drives:
- Checking the temperature of staff and donors before entering a drive to make sure they are healthy.
- Providing hand sanitizer for use before the drive, as well as throughout the donation process.
- Spacing beds, where possible, to follow social distancing practices between blood donors.
- Enhanced disinfecting of surfaces and equipment.
This is an opportunity for us to minister to the needs of our community for a life-saving source of help. Please consider donating if you are able!
