Blood drive is Friday.

The American Red Cross salutes the city and surrounding community’s everyday men and women who help serve others by providing their congregation and the community the opportunity to donate blood.

The Save a Life Sunday initiative invites places of worship to sponsor blood drives and to educate their congregation on the importance of giving blood.

The members of the Shawnee Community have scheduled the following blood drive to ensure an adequate blood supply is available for patients in need:

Shawnee Community Blood Drive

Friday, Nov.15

12:30 p.m - 5:30p.m.

Emmanuel Episcopal Church/Parish Hall

501 N. Broadway Shawnee.

Every two seconds someone needs blood; yet, only five percent of the eligible population donates.

The Red Cross through the Save a Life program works diligently to allow places of worship the chance to save lives through blood donation. These trusted faith communities set a lifesaving example for others to follow.
