There’s no doubt, moving our church community online has had many far-reaching consequences. In addition to missing the chance to worship and fellowship together, we also miss opportunities to serve together. While all of our serving opportunities can be impactful, few have the impact of donating blood.
We have learned new ways to do so many things, including giving blood to those who need it, often desperately. While the Big Red Bus won’t be back at Hyde Park until we are, One Blood, our mission partner, has a variety of donation centers and mobile locations near you. It’s as easy as visiting their website and searching by ZIP code. Appointments are required. You’ll receive a cool T-shirt, a test to determine whether you have the COVID-19 antibodies, and the knowledge that you made a difference in someone’s life. Questions?
