Blood Drive - July 8, 2018

St. John's will be hosting another blood drive on July 22nd from 9:00am - 3:00pm in Clonmel Hall.  There is a signup sheet in the church gathering space for you to sign up for a time to donate or you may call the parish office during the work week to sign up for a time.  There is such a great need for donating blood in the summer months. Please consider giving to this life saving mission!

TOP 10 REASONS TO GIVE BLOOD

1. You will get juice and cookies. 

2. It's easy and convenient. It only takes about an hour to give whole blood, and you can make your donation here at church!

3. You will weigh less. One pint less than when you came in!

4. It's something you can spare. Most people have blood to spare, yet there is still not enough to go around.

5. No one can ask you to do heavy lifting. As long as you wear your bandage, you're on reprieve.  Wear it as long as you like. It's a badge of honor!

6. You will walk a little taller afterward. Most people feel good about themselves knowing they've just helped save someone's life.  You will too! 

7. You will be helping to ensure that blood is there when it's needed. Most people don't think they'll ever need blood, but many do.  One whole blood donation can yield up to three blood products: red cells, platelets and plasma.

8. You will give a gift that costs nothing, but lasts a lifetime. Blood is something money can't buy.  It's only something that one person can give to another.

9. You will be someone's hero! You may give a newborn, a child, a mother or father, a brother or a sister another chance at life.  In fact, you can help save up to three lives with just one donation!

10. It's the right thing to do!
