Oct 16 – American Red Cross Blood Drive at SFB
Every two seconds, someone like you will need blood. Donating blood is quick and easy. You can help to save up to three lives with your donation.
Save the date! On Thursday, Oct. 16, the Cedarburg/Grafton American Red Cross blood drive will be held here at SFB from 1-6:30 p.m. Thanks to St. Joseph Parish in Grafton for partnering with us for this drive! Go online to Red Cross and enter ZIP code 53012 or call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Appointments let us know you are coming, but walk-ins are always welcome. Walk-ins will, however, be checked in after those with appointments. A period of eight weeks (56 days) is required between blood donations, so you cannot participate in this drive if you’ve given blood since August 20.

Oct 23 - Info Session: "Mental Illness is Not a Choice"
One in four people experience a mental illness in their lifetime - including anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).

NAMI Ozaukee is one of the Wisconsin affiliates and located in Ozaukee County. Two members of NAMI Ozaukee will be available to provide information and answer questions for you at an information session hosted by SFB's Health Ministry on Thursday, Oct. 23 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the church hall at the North Church. We hope you will be able to attend.
