The Katharine Konnection

Upcoming Blood Drive


Dear Parishioners,

We will host a Blood Drive with the American Red Cross on Saturday 7 October 2023 in McElroy Hall from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

Each pint of blood collected can help save up to three lives.

Please help us fill our 23 appointment times by  or visiting the parish. Sign Up Here to Donate Blood website.

Help is needed the day of the Blood Drive to assist with check-in.  Please click here to sign up to volunteer.

Some tips from the Red Cross for the day before you donate:

  1. Complete your pre-donation reading and health questionnaire online before you come to the blood drive at  Rapid Pass. This will save about 15 minutes of your time.
  2. Drink an extra 16 ounces of water or -noncaffeinated fluids before the donation.
  3. East a healthy meal before the donation. Avoid overly fatty foods, such as hamburgers, fries or ice cream.
  4. Take the time to enjoy a snack and a drink in the refreshment area immediately after donating.
