Team up to save lives at Sacred Heart blood drive

Staff report

ANNA — The Knights of Columbus of Sacred Heart of Jesus Roman Catholic Church in Anna and Community Blood Center are asking donors to support a holiday season blood drive Tuesday, Dec. 15 from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Activity Center, 9333 State Route 119.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Buckeye Blood Donor” football t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The holiday season blood drive at Sacred Heart Church is traditionally a celebration of the season with special refreshments in the Donor Café and often a visit to donate from Santa.

The “Buckeye Donor” campaign celebrates college football’s holiday bowl season. Everyone who registers to donate now through Saturday, Dec. 19 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive the “Buckeye Donor” t-shirt. The design features a silver football helmet on a red background with the CBC blood drop and the map of Ohio as the helmet emblem.

The holiday season can be a challenging time for maintaining the area blood supply. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule when you can. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
