Blood Drive

The Outreach Committee began considering hosting Blood Donation Drives just prior to the start of the pandemic in 2020.  At that time, however, the church was closed and that plan had to be put on hold until 2021.  In partnership with the Northern Massachusetts Red Cross, Aldersgate hosted our first Blood Drive on September 10, 2021.  To date, we have hosted 4 drives, collecting an average of 33 units of blood.   We plan to host between 2-4 drives annually.   The Outreach committee provides volunteers to work with the Red Cross staff during the drive.  Volunteers are needed to greet and check in donors and manage the refreshment area that donors visit after their donation is complete.

Our next drive is scheduled for Saturday, February 25th, from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm and interested donors can sign up at:
