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.
