May 2020 Blood Drive

BLOOD DRIVE WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, AT ST. MATTHEW

 

Blood is desperately needed and the Blood Center reached out to St. Matthew for our help.  So we will be having our spring blood drive as scheduled on May 20 from 12:30 – 7pm.  

 

As you would expect, the health emergency will require us to do things differently, and will preclude the great food and socializing our blood drives are known for!  For everyone’s safety the Blood Center operates under very strict protocols.  You can find them at www.versiti.org/covid19.  

 

Blood will be collected in two places:  the Gathering Space and the Saints Rooms located below the Gathering Space.  These locations will be completely separated from each other and movement between the two will not be permitted.    

 

If you are available to donate, the first thing to do is to decide whether you want to donate blood in the Gathering Space (entering by the east doors) or in the Saints Rooms (entering by the west Gathering Space doors and proceeding down the stairs).  Older donors might consider donating in the Gathering Space because no stairs are required to enter.

 

If you want to donate in the Gathering Space, register by going to the website www.bit.ly/stmatthewgathering.

 

If you want to donate in the Saints Rooms, register by going to the website www.bit/ly.stmatthewsaintsrm.

 

You can also register by calling Lynn Lopez at (414) 416-4870, who can also answer any of your questions.  We hope to see you May 20th!
