Lenten Outreach

Christ Church Lenten Blood Drive – Apr. 11

Blood is the gift of life and our hospitals are in dire need of donations. Due to the pandemic, blood supplies are at the lowest level in a decade. This is how we can make a difference. The Red Cross will be in the Parish Hall on Monday, Apr. 11 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Register via this link. If you are unable to give blood and would like to be a part of this outreach, please contact Sandy Anthony via sacanthony@gmail.com to assist with registration and canteen.
