Super Bowl Mega Blood Drive 2013

Yellow Shirts Take Over Mega Blood Drive

Yellow is becoming one of New Jersey’s brightest and most frequently seen colors! Recently, even Metlife Stadium welcomed 200 members from the World Mission Society Church of God donating blood in their yellow shirts at the Super Bowl Mega Blood Drive on October 1, 2013.

The State Department of Health and the Super Bowl Host Committee joined hands for a big cause and the Church of God came from everywhere to support it. The Metlife Stadium parking lot was a sea of yellow as members filled blood donation buses from early morning until late afternoon. The mission on the volunteers’ minds: save three lives with each donation.

This Mega Blood Drive was organized to address New Jersey’s dire need to increase its low blood supply. Only 3.6% of New Jersey residents donate blood, which pales in comparison to the national standard of 5%. Church of God members were compelled to unite and take action to help the community. Church of God volunteers drove from New Hampshire, Boston, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Rhode Island, Maryland, Washington D.C., Central Jersey, South Jersey and Manhattan to give life-saving blood.

According to a donor service staff member, “If it were’t for you guys, this would not have been a mega blood drive. You guys in your yellow shirts really saved the day!”

The volunteers’ motivation to donate blood stems from the teachings of Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother. “I willingly donate blood hoping that I can save as many lives as possible. To me, this is the least that I can do to show others the love God has showed me. God have me His blood through the Passover so that I can receive eternal life. Hopefully through this, others will also understand the importance of the Passover.”
