Red Cross Blood Drive
Sunday, June 11
9:00 am-1:00 pm
Next Sunday, St. George’s will host a Red Cross Blood Drive.
Donors can be as young as 16, but need parental consent if
under 18. Donating takes about 45 minutes to an hour and it’s a simple and nearly painless way to help those in need.
For questions, please call Frank Rogers at 618-363-1045, American Red Cross at 866-236-3276, or redcrossblood.org. Sign up for an
appointment, and you go to the head of the line when arriving.
