Knights of Columbus Community Blood Drive

Knights of Columbus Community Blood Drive
The St. Thomas the Apostle Knights of Columbus are coordinating a Community  Blood Drive to help reduce summer blood shortage and is asking the communtiy to help.  Saturday, July 13th is your opportunity to help your relatives, friends and neighbors when you participate and donate blood. Donations can be made from 7:30am to 12:30 in the St. Thomas the Apostle Community Center, located at 451 W. Terra Cotta Ave. - IL Rt 176 at Oak Street.

Heartland Blood Centers distributes nearly 4,000 units of blood components each week to treat patients in area hospitals and in emergencies around the world. This amazing feat wouldn’t be possible without the help from charitable volunteers who give their time in order to help blood donors “give the gift of life.”

Any healthy individual 17 and older can volunteer to donate blood and it must be 8 weeks since your last whole blood donation.
