St. Joseph and St. Francis Borgia parishes will again collaborate for an American Red Cross blood drive coming up on Monday, June 14. The drive will run from 1 – 6:30 p.m. in the church hall (downstairs at St. Francis Borgia’s North Church).
To make an appointment, visit RedCrossBlood.org and type in “53012” in the “Find a Blood Drive” box in the upper right-hand corner. Not a computer person? Please call the Red Cross at 1-800-RED CROSS for assistance with an appointment.
It feels great to donate – plus you get free juice and cookies! Most healthy people have blood to spare… yet, there is still not enough to go around. You can help ensure blood is available this summer when demand is often high and supply can be low. You will be someone’s hero. In fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation. Thank you for considering!
Not able to donate, but you’d like to help? We are in need of volunteers to help with registration and in the hospitality area. Please contact the parish office and we’ll connect you with Diane Carlson, the volunteer coordinator for our blood drives.
For those donating blood, the American Red Cross (ARC) has updated its pandemic safety protocols in alignment with CDC and OSHA guidance. Here’s what you need to know:
- Fully vaccinated individuals, including staff, volunteers and blood donors, will no longer need to wear face masks or socially distance beginning May 21.
- Unvaccinated individuals will continue to be required to wear face masks and socially distance.
- Proof of vaccination will not be a requirement. We trust that our blood donors will provide honest responses – it’s what our eligibility process is built upon. We will continue to rely on the honesty of our blood donors when it comes to COVID-19 vaccination and face masks.
We remain committed to the safety of our partners, volunteers, donors and staff, following the highest standards of safety and infection control. Your continued support means so much to patients and their families – we couldn’t fulfill our lifesaving mission without you. We’re so grateful for all you do!
