Knights of Columbus at St. John schedule blood drive

MADISON – The Knights of Columbus, Assembly 2420 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church will sponsor its regular, bi-monthly American Red Cross blood drive on Dec. 19.

Hours for the drive will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The blood drive will be set up in the church basement.

For an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org, and click “Make your appointment.” Type “35758” in the “ZIP or Sponsor Code” box. Select the St. John blood drive from the list of events, and select the time that you want to schedule the appointment.

“The need for blood in Alabama and the nation is constant, and especially so now with COVID-19 continuing to threaten us,” John Horch with Knights of Columbus said. “With regard to the virus, we will be observing the suggestions from national and state officials and the diocese leaders for separation, disinfecting and cleanliness guidelines.”

“Your participation is greatly appreciated by the Red Cross and St. John’s Knights of Columbus, but most of all by those who need blood at this trying time in our nation,” Horch said. “Please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and give the gift of life.”

The American Red Cross is closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus disease and preparing to carry out its lifesaving mission in the event of any possible disruptions. The organization also is supporting public health agencies to help communities prepare. (redcross.org)

Volunteers account for 90 percent of the Red Cross workforce. Their need for volunteers is constant and continues to evolve as the country navigates this health crisis.

The staff with American Red Cross is working with public health officials to help keep local communities and the volunteers safe. Volunteer opportunities include supporting blood donations and delivering much-needed services to the community. American Red Cross also has a wide variety of remote opportunities that allows volunteers to pursue work-from-home options.

St. John’s address is 1057 Hughes Road. For more information, call the church office at 256-722-0130 or Horch at 256-772-3280.
