We will be hosting a blood drive in the bloodmobile on Sunday, October 19 from 9:00 – 1:30. You can sign up online at redcrossblood.org by clicking on sponsor code and entering Abiding Presence or you can contact Beth Hartzell at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 919-557-0778 for assistance signing up and she will sign you up. Every donation saves 3 lives and all donations are appreciated. The last few blood drives have had problems with people not showing up – not from our congregation but from people signed up via telephone calls from the Red Cross. We are trying to fill this drive with volunteers from the congregation and the community so the Red Cross has agreed to leave this drive off of the call list. Let’s see if we can fill it up! Thank you!
