Give the Gift of Life on Wednesday, May 10th. Calvary UMC is hosting our annual Spring Blood Drive for the American Red Cross on Wednesday, May 10th from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the church’s Fellowship Hall.
Just a little over 15 years ago, Eric Anderson took over as the coordinator for the American Red Cross Blood drive at Calvary United Methodist Church. Since February 2008, Eric has coordinated what has become the largest site for blood donation in Frederick County, with five drives each year and almost 5,000 units donated. On May 10, he will be coordinating/hosting his 75th drive. He will be stepping aside to take on other responsibilities. His goal during this drive is to hit the goal of 100 units.
Just a 1-2 hour contribution of your time can help save up to 3 people with a single blood donation! Blood supply levels remain critically low, and you can help make a huge difference by signing up for a lifesaving donation. Even if you can’t give at this time, you can always invite a friend to donate!
To sign up and help Calvary and Eric reach this goal, call or text Eric before the event at 240.506.5759, or connect via email at Eric.Anderson@FrederickHabitat.org. OR, you can contact me, Calvary’s new Blood Drive Coordinator and an American Red Cross Board member, at email@example.com. Eric and I will continue to work together to keep Calvary’s seasonal blood drives the #1 drives in Frederick County!
Grace and peace,
Rev. Steve Larsen
