The Divine Child Red Cross blood drive is sponsored by the Christian Service Commission and held three times a year-during the Easter holiday, in the month of August, and again during the Christmas holiday. These blood drives are more than a parish activity that serves the parishioners – they are a contribution of immense importance to the health care of our community and surrounding areas. The service of the Red Cross is available to your family whether or not you have given blood. Anyone who is in good health, weighs at least 110 pounds, and is age 17 or over is eligible to donate. There is no maximum age limit if one has been donating regularly. Watch the parish paper, “The Infant” and parish calendar for details regarding upcoming blood drives.
