Blood drive at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church

Event Dates: October 5, 2013 (All day)

An American Red Cross Blood Drive will be held from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church near Stroh.

    Have you stopped to think how incredible blood is? It transports oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. It carries waste products out of the body. It delivers hormones essential for human development and regular bodily functioning. In one day, the approximately six quarts of blood in your body travels 12,000 miles – that’s four times the distance across the U.S. Blood is the mobile, life-sustaining tissue of the body that is critical to every human being.

    Residents from the Stroh/South Milford area and from the greater four-county area are encouraged to give the gift of life through a pint of blood donation. The units of blood received at this blood drive will be processed by the American Red Cross and benefit multiple patients in medical facilities throughout the region.

    To schedule a blood donation appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or go to www.redcross blood.org and use sponsor code “pofpluth.”

    The church is located three miles southwest of Stroh on CR 550S at 1025E, just north of Big Long Lake. For more information or for directions, call the church office at 351-2144.
