Evangel Community Church will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 12  at 1530 Harlansburg Road.

For more information or to make an appointment to donate, go to Evangel Community Churches Facebook page or to: https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/drive-results.

You can also text the word “Blood” to (724) 686-1212 and someone will get back to you.

“Evangel Community Church is committed to strengthening our community and helping meet hospital and patient needs through blood donations, especially at a time like this.” said Pastor Harry Edenhofer. “This blood drive is our way of giving staff, colleagues and neighbors an opportunity to help save lives.”

Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors.

“We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.”

According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
