Help can't wait. Participate in an American Red Cross bloodmobile.
We are called to live as family and community. There are so many things in this world today that are wrong. Won't you try to do something right? Help save a life. Help save three lives with your one pint of blood. Help save lives every 56 days.
The need for blood is constant, every two second someone in the United States needs blood. However, the number of people donating blood fluctuates because many donors are deferred due to serious medical conditions or travel in high risk areas. The commitment of new donors partnering up with community members who make donating blood a top priority is extremely important.
If you have a teenager, 16 years old, you could start to make giving blood a family affair. Bring many generations together to give blood. Think of all the love that could be spread to your family and others in the community. Think how many lives you could save. Give blood somewhere.
St. Aloysius Annual Blood Drive is Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., in St. Aloysius Catholic School gymnasium, 150 S. Enterprise St., Bowling Green.
Donors are asked to bring positive identification. Babysitting will be provided.
To schedule an appointment, please call Mary Lou Szabo, daytime phone 419-354-1250 after 11 a.m., or evenings at 419-352-4984. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred.
There will be a Knights of Columbus drawing for four gift certificates of $25.
Thank you for partnering together to help save lives.
