Blood Drive

St. Paul’s and American Red Cross have teamed up for a blood drive.

An estimated 38 percent of Americans are eligible to give blood, but of those, less than 10 percent actually donate each year. If you are healthy and eligible, please come out to donate. Most donations take about an hour, so book your appointment, roll up your sleeve and become a part of the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross and St. Paul’s. If you don’t know if you’re eligible, show up to find out. And if you can’t donate blood, we would love to have you as a volunteer at our drive.
