Each year Gesu takes on the challenge of hosting blood drives on days of special need for the Blood Center. Our winter drive takes place on Martin Luther King Day, always a Monday in mid-January. The winter blood drive includes a chili-fest, homemade chili donated by our members, for the hospitality of our donors.
Our summer drive is always near the Fourth of July holiday, a time of year when the Blood Center often experiences critical shortages. Blood Donors and Hospitality Volunteers are always needed. To become an active member of the Blood Drive Team, contact our Parish Nurse, Marcia Isherwood.
