The Knights of Columbus and the American Red Cross thank everyone who participated in the May 19th blood drive at St Bridget Church. It was the first blood drive with the Red Cross since they took over Virginia Blood Services, and the overwhelming response from parishioners was very positive. We managed to receive 18 donations, besting our goal by three people. This effort translates into saving up to 54 lives. We apologize for not being able to accommodate much of the walk-in traffic, but the schedule was full do to the majority of on-line registrations. We will work on getting more people in next time. God bless everyone who was able to donate, or considered sharing their life-giving blood to save people they will likely never know!
