On September 19th from from 7:30 AM to 12 PM, North Laurel Baptist Church will be hosting a blood drive through the American Red Cross.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a high demand for blood donations, especially plasma donations from former COVID-19 patients. Plasma from recovered individuals may contain antibodies against COVID-19. This plasma can then be given to hospitalized patients fighting the virus and may help them recover.
If you are not a recovered COVID-19 patient there is still a constant need to maintain the blood supply and provide lifesaving treatment to patients suffering from a variety of injuries and illnesses.
Sign up today at redcrossblood.org or see Bobbi Gillette for the sign-up sheet and more information.
