Blood Drive: January 17th - CANCELED

Wednesday, January 17th; 3 to 7 pm in the Fellowship Hall

An American Red Cross Blood Drive will be held at Duluth First United Methodist Church on Wednesday, January 17th, from 3 to 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Every donor will get a token of our appreciation and we will have 2 prize drawings as well as t-shirts.

The benefits of donating blood are:

  • It feels great to donate!
  • You get free juice and delicious cookies.
  • It’s something you can spare. Most people have blood to spare...yet, there is still not enough to go around.
  • You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed. Most people don’t think they’ll ever need blood, but many do.
  • You will be someone’s hero! In fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.
  • If you are already committed to giving a gift of life, please:

  • Make an appointment online by clicking on American Red Cross Blood Drive Online Registration;
  • Make an appointment by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767);
  • Contact Tracy Brinker by e-mail at tbrinker@duluthumc.org, or by calling 770-476 3776, ext. 112.
  • Last, but not least, as a “walk-in” on Blood Drive Day.
  • “...use your hands for good hard work, and then give generously to others in need.”

    Ephesians 4:28b (NLT)
