Urgent need for blood donors

Being in an accident or facing emergency surgery are frightening situations. We can help those in dire circumstances by donating blood to ensure that there is one less worry they have to face.

St. Francis Borgia and St. Joseph parishes will collaborate for an American Red Cross blood drive on Thursday, Sept. 20 in the SFB church hall. Donation times begin at 1 p.m. and continue through 6:30 p.m. For online scheduling, go to www.RedCrossBlood.org. For phone appointments, call 1-800-REDCROSS.

Thanks for your kindness to those who face medical emergencies.From kids with cancer to accident survivors waiting for critical surgeries, patients depend on lifesaving blood products, so they can heal and thrive. Your assistance helps ensure that there is blood on the shelves when these needs arise.
