GIVING BACK: SAINT MICHAEL AND ALL ANGELS ACHIEVES PREMIER BLOOD PARTNER STATUS FOR ITS WORK WITH THE RED CROSS
DALLAS, January 23, 2023 – Saint Michael and All Angels has been recognized by the American Red Cross as one of its Premier Blood Partners for 2023, a prestigious honor, for its support of the community and national blood supply.
Last year, Saint Michael and All Angels helped the Red Cross collect 117 blood donations as part of its deep-rooted commitment to help save lives of patients facing illnesses and injuries in this community, and across the country.
“Saint Michael and All Angels is proud to be a part of the Red Cross mission that helps ensure lifesaving blood is available for hospital patients in need,” Dianne Boyd, Parish Nurse. “Our organization shares that same humanitarian value to help our neighbors, and we are grateful for the opportunity to host blood drives that will do just that here in our community.”
Every day, volunteer blood and platelet donors across the country are needed to help save lives. Blood and platelets are needed for accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease, according to the Red Cross.
Saint Michael and All Angels will host a Red Cross blood drive on Friday, February 3, and April 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Theater. Community members are urged to come out and roll up a sleeve.
“We encourage the community to join us Friday, February 3 or April 28 to give the gift of life. The donation process only takes about an hour and can make an enormous difference for a patient battling illness or injury.”
To schedule an appointment to donate blood at upcoming blood drives, contact Dianne Boyd, RN at [email protected].
Donors of all blood types are needed. Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors.
