Volunteer Opportunity: Blood Drive

March 29 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Volunteer: Donate Blood (the need is more urgent than ever!)

 

In these difficult times, giving blood is something healthy individuals can do to help the sick. Calvary is partnering with Vitalant to host a blood drive on Sunday, March 29, from 9 am – 1  pm.

 

Blood drives are absolutely critical to avoiding another public health emergency: not having enough blood to meet basic patient needs.

 

Vitalant’s highest priority is the safety of the blood supply, blood donors, patients and staff. Blood donors must be healthy, feeling well and free of respiratory illness symptoms, including fever, to be eligible to donate. Additionally:

  1. There is no inherent risk of getting coronavirus from the donation procedure itself. To minimize the risk of contracting it from others at a blood drive or donation center, our staff follow rigorous safety and disinfection protocols that include wearing gloves and personal protective gear, wiping down donor-touched areas often and after every collection, using sterile collection sets for every donation/collection, and arm scrubbing for 30 seconds.
  2. Blood donation does not impact or weaken a donor’s immune system.

 

 Get ready to save lives with Calvary!
