Our next Blood Drive will be in July 16, 2023
Hermitage Hills Baptist Church partners with the American Red Cross to host two Blood Drives each year. This is a way for us to use our facility to help those in our city. It connects us not only to a community organization, The Red Cross, but it also helps us to connect with our community as donors come to give.
Did you know. . .
- every two seconds someone in America needs blood,
- blood is needed for mothers giving birth, premature babies, accident/trauma victims, open heart surgeries, cancer treatments, and many more,
- one hour of your time will provide the Red Cross with one unit of blood,
- one unit of blood can help up to three people.
In 2022, our two drives were very successful. We had 86 people register to donate which provided 82 units of blood. This means that our drives had the potential to help 246 people! Thank you to all that have donated in the past drives and we look forward to welcoming new donors this year at our drives on Sunday, January 8, 2022, and Sunday, July 16, 2023, from noon to 4:00 pm.
