We Are Blood

By Ken Orze, GK, Council 7600

Vol. 4, 2016-2017


Blood Collections have been severely impacted by Covid-19 and the Knights of Council 7600, Saint Mary Margaret - Cedar Park, stepped up to the call for action and organized a blood drive on September 12. We worked with We Are Blood who has been providing and protecting community blood and inspiring Central Texans to save lives locally.

Thirty-two donors pre-registered for the donation event, as appointment reservations are now part of the requirements during the pandemic. Donors were screened as they entered the collection bus, parked conveniently in the Church parking lot.

Collection efforts paid off with 24 whole blood and 2 double red cell blood donations collected safely and made available to support central Texans as We Are Blood now serves over 40 hospitals and medical facilities in a 10 county area.
