PUMC to Host Red Cross Blood Drive (8/6/21)

Posted by on Jul 26, 2021 in EventAnnouncement, Mission: AroundTowns, Neighbors | 0 comments

Blood is always needed for life saving procedures, and supplies always drop during the summer. There is currently a severe blood shortage, and donations are desperately needed.

On Friday August 6, 2021 we’ll have a chance to help meet that need.  The American Red Cross will conduct one of their blood drive clinics in our Fellowship Hall between 1:00 and 6:00 PM.  Appointments are necessary.  You can either make them online (see below) or by calling the Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS  (800-733-2767).

If you’re available and able, please consider making a donation.

Due to the current surge in COVID cases, the American Red Cross is strongly encouraging  everyone attending the Blood Drive to please wear masks.

 

 

 

If you’ve never donated blood before and have some concerns about how the process works and whether or not you’ll be able to make a donation, the American Red Cross website has a page just for you!
