Blood Drive @ Jumu’ah

December 1, 2023 @ 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 25th 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. Donation takes 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 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. See the latest travel-related restrictions to blood donation eligibility.

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.

On the morning of the blood drive, please complete the Rapid Pass online and bring the print-off to speed up the check-in process. Complete at https://mcceastbay.org/rapid
