Parishioners across the Diocese of San Jose will give blood at one of six parish collection sites during the Interfaith Community Blood Drive.
The DSJ, together with the Diocese of Oakland and a number of faith communities will take part.
This is the second year of the Interfaith Community Blood Drive. It comes on the heels of a collaboration between the Diocese of Oakland and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints last summer.
That drive collected an unprecedented 1,700 units.
With growing interest and additional participation this year, the goal has increased to between 7,000 – 7,500 units. A single pint of blood can save as many as three lives.
Locally, it is hoped that the parish blood drive sites, with the help of their neighboring parishes, will each collect 100 units of blood.
Historically, the blood supply is at its lowest in the summer.


To give blood, donors must
:


• Be at least 17 years old (there is no upper age limit).
• Weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good general health.
• Have photo identification, such as a driver’s license.
• They also cannot have given blood in the last 56 days (eight weeks).
• Linda Tully is Chancellor of the Diocese of San Jose and is coordinating the blood drive effort in the diocese.


Make an appointment to give blood...
Call 1-800-RED CROSS or 1 (800) 733-2767 and mention the Interfaith Community Blood Drive,
or visit www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation-sponsor,
and type in the sponsor code “InterfaithCommunity” (one word)
to find the nearest blood drive location.
