The OSLC Mission Committee will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Saturday, August 15, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. The blood drive will be located in the Fellowship Hall.
For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all blood, platelet, and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service.
This testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have been exposed to this coronavirus.
The Red Cross is committed to helping others in meaningful ways during this pandemic.
