blood drive sign 2
Did you know that making a blood donation can save up to three lives? Accident victims, surgery patients, and those fighting cancer and other diseases need blood to survive. There is much technology in our world, but scientists have yet to develop a method for synthesizing blood. It’s up to us to share this most precious gift.

St. Joseph Parish hosts regular Blood Drives as way of following Christ’s mandate to heal the sick. It’s incredible that this simple deed can have such an impact on others. Click here for more details and to find out when the next Blood Drive is scheduled at St. Joseph’s.
