East Coast Mega Blood Drive in New England

The World Mission Society Church of God held its third annual East Coast Mega Blood Drive. The blood drive took place in 13 different locations throughout the East Coast and the Caribbean on the same day. Among the 13 locations, members also held a blood drive in New England.

At the Boston blood drive, the American Red Cross collected more than 100 units of blood. Eager donors ranged from young adults to the elderly. All of the local church members united with the community with the goal to save as many lives as possible through blood donation.

Though some first-time donors were initially nervous about donating blood, they overcame their anxieties. The positive environment and large numbers of fellow donors gave them the motivation to donate. The encouraging bright smiles of the volunteers helped them to reaffirm the purpose of why they came out. A single donation can save up to three lives!

Blood donation is needed throughout the year. But, in the summer months, the need is even greater due to blood supply shortages. This is the reason the Church of God has traditionally held its Mega Blood Drive.

The church members facilitated the registration process, welcomed, escorted donors from the donation beds and assisted in any way they could. Afterward, they even donated blood themselves.

“It is a great honor to see the courage of the donors that regardless of their tiredness and busy life, they still made time to come and donate blood today,” said Medical Assistant Jessica Sanchez.

The Church of God is thankful to all who participated in the blood drive in New England. Volunteers will continue serving their community with a loving heart following the example of Christ.
