Blood Drive Results from May 19th

The American Red Cross, our Blood Drive Collection service provider

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!


AnnV giving Blood - June 2013

Dear Brother Knights and Men’s Ministry:

We just completed our late-summer Blood Drive at St Bridget. We had 13 generous donors, but these numbers are down from participation of the past. End of summer is a tough time of year with travel, vacations and a return to school, but we do greatly appreciate all the support from our Council and Church. This is such a huge gift, one that cannot be overvalued, and is truly the “gift of Life”!

On September 10th at Noon I will be meeting with Christine Homan, parishioner and Account Manager for VBS, for a lunch meeting at O’Charlies – the corner of Horsepen and Broad Streets. We are looking for ideas and suggestions to improve turnout at future events. Your input will be valued, and your interest in participating to help us even greater.

If you cannot make it to the meeting on 9/10, we would still like to hear from you with any suggestions that we may implement to increase turnout. I’ve been coordinating this for the last year or so for the Knights and appreciate any ideas or support you are willing to provide.

Please contact me at your convenience – at this email or on my cell phone.

John VanderSyde, Communications Coordinator Council 5476
