Blood Drive Ministry - Red Cross Help
Our ministry aims to assist the Red Cross to coordinate, delegate, promote and oversee all tasks involved with blood drive five times a year. We need both volunteers to assist with the blood drive event at the church and to encourage donors to give blood.
Why does Church of the Resurrection Host a Blood Drive?
- Support our community
- Energize our Parishioners by providing a convenient way to give back to the community
- Join a 125-year strong movement of service
- Enjoy a partnership with the Red Cross where everyone wins
- Save lives!!!
Why should you donate?
- You get free juice and delicious cookies.
- It's something you can spare – most people have blood to spare... yet, there is still not enough to go around.
- You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed – most people don't think they'll ever need blood, but many do.
- You will be someone's hero – in fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.
The American Red Cross has a severe winter blood shortage and is issuing an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to make a donation. Please consider scheduling an appointment and help save patient lives. To see our next scheduled drive and to sign up to donate blood, click the Red Cross Logo.
Win this Beautiful Quilt
Dianna Hall, our Food Preparation Coordinator for the Blood Drive, is offering a donation of a 19 x 19 Christmas quilt wall hanging for our church blood donors only. If you give blood, your name will be put in the drawing. After the last blood drive this year (November 2017), we will draw a winning name!
The more you donate... the better are your chances to win!
