St. Andrews Blood Drive

Feb 27, 2017 12:14PM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is responding to the Red Cross’ call for blood donations. In the United States, the Red Cross is responsible for about 40 percent of the blood supply, however, roughly 37,000 fewer donors gave during November and December. Along with the hectic holiday season, severe weather hampered donations and forced blood drives to be cancelled. About 14,000 blood and platelet donations a day are now needed to meet the needs of about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers. 

 

St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church wants to help and is inviting other community organizations to join in on Saturday, March 25, 9am-3pm, at St. Andrew’s on 1601 Mary Dr. in Pleasant Hill. In less than an hour, you can save someone’s life, possibly someone in Northern California, as our local blood banks mostly meet and fill local demand for blood. Almost anyone can donate, starting from age 16 (with parents permission). To register visit http://standrews-pcusa.org, or call 925-685-4720.
