Mark your calendar for our next drive on Sunday, January 7th, 2024.
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.
How can you participate. . .

Last year, we were able to help up to 240 people since our drives collected 80 units of blood.
