Kof C sponsored blood drive Aug. 22nd at 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM – in the gym

Our Blood Drive is approaching quickly, nearly one week away on 8/22. If you are in town and can give a pint, please register ASAP – see below.

If you cannot give blood but would like to volunteer to set up or break down – we arrive at Mother Presentation Hall at 7:30 AM to set up tables and chairs. We will then begin breaking down and sweeping up once the last donor has finished, and Red Cross starts packing up to leave. We already have some scheduled help scheduled, but email JOHN VANDERSYDE if you want to participate. You are welcome to stop by after mass to provide encouragement 😊

Here are a few key reminders and best practices to make your blood drive on Sunday, August 22, 2021 as successful as possible:

  1. Our goal for donation 18 pints – this is 54 lives potentially saved thanks to your efforts! Donors can continue to sign up through you, through the blood donor app, or online by going to www.redcrossblood.org and searching Bridget.
  2. Donors are reminded to access the newly released RapidPass. Rapidpass allows you to start the blood donation process from the comfort of your home or office and answer health history questions before you arrive at the blood drive location –this can shave 15-20 minutes off your donation time! RapidPass must be completed the day of the drive and can be found at www.redcross.org/RapidPass
  3. Donors should eat a good breakfast or lunch, drink plenty of water, and bring a picture ID with them to the drive. 
  4. For help with online scheduling or logon information, please contact customer care at 1-855-210-1278 (or customercare@redcross.org) from 8:30 am to 9:00 pm ET to assist you.  

Sign up with a friend; thank you so much for helping us recruit life-saving blood donors. We could not complete our life-saving mission without your help!!!

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
