Post-Ramadan Blood Drive *Donors Needed*
June 7 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
The MCC community has saved nearly 250 lives! This is our 13th blood drive during Jumu’ah. Each blood drive has always been fully booked or near-fully booked!
Let’s continue that trajectory at this Winter blood drive and keep all our American Red Cross guests busy when they setup in our Banquet Hall from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 7, 2019.
If you have visited India, Pakistan, or another malaria high-risk country and returned within the last 12 months, you are not eligible to donate blood.
Every person who donates blood at MCC will receive a voucher for either a free haircut at Super Haircut in San Ramon, or a free oil change at Midas and SpeeDee Oil Change in Dublin, or a meal at Burgerim Gourmet Halal Burgers in Pleasanton. These vouchers are generously donated by a MCC congregation member to encourage participation.
Right now, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of most blood types, and a critical shortage of type O! Blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in. Every donor you schedule has the potential to save lives. Our faith informs us to save one life is akin to saving all of humanity.
MCC Youth: If you are 16 to 18, here is the link to the donor requirements and parental authorization form.
On the morning of the blood drive, please complete the Rapid Pass online and bring the print-off with you to speed up the check-in process.
In 2019, MCC has organized four blood drives at the community center on Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please mark your calendar for these dates:
