Annual Red Cross Blood Drive Returns to New Hope

Posted on Fri, Jun 12, 2009

It's that time of year again...time to give the gift of life!

New Hope is sponsoring an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, June 25th, 2009 in the Family Ministry Center. The event will run from 3 pm to 8 pm. Our goal this year is 40 pints. We know we can exceed this goal with your help. Volunteers are needed (greeters, set up/clean up, sign in monitors, refreshment servers, etc.). If you can assist, please contact the Church Office between 9 AM and 2PM M-F (252-237-1688), or contact the Church by e-mail @

Who can be a donor!
Generally, individuals may donate if they are in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and are at least 16 years of age (with parental consent).

There will also be TWO double red cell donation machines. Requirements for double red cell donation are: Males - 150 lbs. and 5' 1" height minimum, Females - 175 lbs. and 5' 5" minimum height. All double red cell donors must be at least 17 years of age and in generally good health with a 40% iron level. Double red cell donors are eligible to donate every 112 days (every 16 weeks). The church receives double credit for every double red cell please consider this option!
