Margo’s Drive – Children’s Hospital Blood Drive
During the pandemic, Children’s Hospital has experienced a significant decrease in blood donations. Did you know that all the blood collected for the Children's Hospital remains with them to support children with cancer, sickle cell disease, rare disease, surgeries, and other chronic illness? Did you know that one unit can help 4-5 little people at Children’s?
In memory of baby Margo, a former parishioner and patient of Children’s, our parish will once again host Margo’s Drive - this year, on Sunday, June 20 from 10am to 3pm, in the North Conference Room. You must register to donate. Donors must be at least 17 years old. It is recommended that donors eat breakfast/lunch on the day of donation, that they start hydrating with water the day before, and on day of donation drink 16 oz. of water.
Please register either by calling the blood donor center at 202-476-5437 to make an appointment, or scheduling online at Make an Appointment (cnmcblooddonor.com). Questions? Email the Social Justice Coordinator.
