Blood Drive Success
January report: Thanks so much for those who served our community by donating blood on Sunday, January 17. We had a nice turnout and collected at least 26 units. Red Cross continues to do COVID antibody testing so that is an added perk for donors.
April report: Although our Red Cross Blood Drive on April 11 was a bit anemic with only 16 units collected, we truly appreciate all those who rolled up their sleeves to give. Our next drive will be Sunday, July 11 from 9:00-1:00 in the youth center.
October report: Thanks to all who donated blood on October 24 whether you scheduled an appointment or walked in. We had 22 units collected. Not bad but I know we can do better! Mark your calendars: our next date is January 16, 2022-same time same place (9a-1p in the Youth Center). Other 2022 dates are April 10 & July 10.
Thanks 473ml worth (a pint)!

Upcoming Blood Drives!
Our Blood Drive dates for 2022 are: January 16, April 10, and July 10.
All blood drives take place in the Youth Center in the St. Paul Family Life Center from 9:00am-1:00pm.
1) Make an appointment: www.redcrossblood.org. We would prefer no walk-ins.
2) Use Rapid Pass on the day of donation. It will expedite the process once at St. Paul.
3) Wear a mask during donation, as required by Red Cross. Masks will be available on site as well. Temperatures will be taken prior to entering the Youth Center.
Donated blood will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies. Donors will receive test results in 5-7 days.
