Please don’t call the parish office to sign up.

 

Our parish is working with the ARC to provide a safe and much needed blood drive! They have strict safety protocols in place to keep donors and workers safe. They will meet the donor at the door (Door “A” - closet to the road) to check a temperature and ask you some questions. They request that donors come in a mask or one will be provided.  It is necessary to sign up and reserve a time. No walk ins at this time. This allows space between the donors and the availability to work one on one with them. They will provide the packaged drinks and snacks. No volunteers needed from our parish.

We are a very vital parish that takes care of the needs of others! This is an opportunity to do a good deed to help someone. Please consider signing up and encouraging others to give blood! Thank you!
