The American Red Cross encourages healthy individuals to keep scheduled donation appointments and to make new blood donation appointments for the weeks ahead to ensure a stable supply throughout this pandemic. MPPC has decided to host a blood drive in the Fellowship Hall in order to help the Red Cross to meet their donation needs. Please know that the blood drive will be operated in the safety way possible with many additional sanitation guidelines in place. To read more about all safety precautions taken, click here.
