Our blood donations are vital to patients year-round, but especially during the holidays, when blood donations typically drop. If there isn't enough blood available for patients, doctors may be faced with the impossible choice of who gets blood and who must wait. Please, will you join others in donating around Thanksgiving to prevent unthinkable choices? To support the community blood supply, United Christian Parish will be hosting a blood drive at 745 N. Brush St in Lakeport. The drive will be taking place from 11am - 3pm, appointments are encouraged. In appreciation for donating around the Thanksgiving holiday, all whole blood, platelet, plasma and Power Red donors who come to donate Nov. 22 - 28, 2022, will receive a $20 Amazon.com Gift Card, redeemable by email.
