Blood Drive @ Jumu’ah
June 2 @ 10:30 am – 4:30 pm
As people of faith, it is in our blood to help. Be part of a lifesaving journey to save up to three lives with a 15-minute blood donation.
The MCC community has saved nearly 350 lives! This is our 23rd blood drive during Jumu’ah. Each blood drive has always been fully booked or near-fully booked!
Let’s continue that trajectory at this blood drive and keep all our American Red Cross guests busy when they set up in our Banquet Hall from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on a Friday. Sign up at: https://www.mcceastbay.org/blood-drive
In 2023, MCC will proudly host these quarterly blood drives during Jumuah services from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with our friends at the American Red Cross:
- Friday, March 3, 2023
- Friday, June 2, 2023
- Friday, September 1, 2023
- Friday, December 1, 2023
A Power Red donation targets O-, O+, A-, and B- only. The donation process takes an additional 20-30 minutes because donors give two units of concentrated Red Blood Cells, and your platelets and plasma are returned.
Blood donors report feeling a sense of great satisfaction after making their blood donation. Why? Because helping others in need just feels good.
If you have visited India, Pakistan, or another high-risk malaria country and returned within the last 12 months, you are not eligible to donate blood.
Every person who donates blood at MCC in 2023 will receive a voucher for a free meal at iniBurger – Gourmet Burgers in Pleasanton. These vouchers are generously donated by MCC congregation members Leeza and Abdullah Popal, who own these establishments, to encourage community and congregation participation.
MCC Youth: If you are 16 to 18, here is the donor requirements and parental authorization form link.
