Lutheran Church to Host Blood Drive

Lutheran Church in the Foothills is encouraging the community to donate blood and help save lives by holding a blood drive on Thursday, May 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the church’s Fellowship Hall.
This will be the church’s 13th blood drive for the American Red Cross. To date, LCIF’s blood drives have collected 292 units from more than 300 donors.
“The need for blood remains urgent,” an LCIF press release stated. “According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood and/or platelets. Supply can’t always meet demand because only about 3% of age-eligible people donate blood yearly. Each new donor helps the Red Cross meet patient needs.”
To donate at the blood drive, make an appointment at redcrossblood.org.
In other news, LCIF activities is hosting a number of activities that are open to all this spring and summer, including Bible study groups, knitting, quilting, opportunities to learn livestreaming media production and more. Sunday worship service with Pastor Rick Hall is held at 10 a.m., in person and online.
Visit lcifoothills.org for event details, including small group gatherings and opportunities to serve. For more information or to request or offer help, email office@lcifoothills.org or call (818) 790-1951.
The church is located at 1700 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada Flintridge. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday.
