blood drive

 

The Diocese has partnered with the American Red Cross to host "United As One" blood drive to raise awareness of gun violence and safety. 

  • Every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
  • Suicides accounted for more than half of U.S. gun deaths in 2020 (54%)
  • While 43% were gun related murders.
  • Gunshot victims require an average of 10 times more blood than other trauma patients. In 2020 the United states hit an all time record for the amount of gun related deaths.

You can help save a life, by donating blood and learning about gun safety and how to help decrease the number of firearm deaths.
To sign up to donate blood, please visit redcrossblood.org and enter United As One in the box in the upper right where it says "find a blood drive" or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
