MLK HOLIDAY BLOOD DRIVE
The Diocese of San Bernardino-Catholics of African Descent and LifeStream have convened the coalition of community partners to conduct the 15th Annual “Blood of the Martyrs” Blood Drive on January 19, 2015 the Martin Luther King holiday.
Blood donations will be made in honor of the man who gave his blood for this country and also increasing the incidence of bold donation among non-donors historically. Blood donations by African Americans have increased by 300% in the Inland Empire. Moreover the event will help keep alive the memory of Dr Kings for generations who were not born when the he was martyred.
All four official blood bank sites, flying the Blood of the Martyrs banner, will be manned by volunteers for the coalition who will encourage sign-ups prior to the holiday and recruit walk-ins to donate in honor of Dr. King. Sites will be open on varying schedules. Other sites, such as churches, will be serviced by LifeStream mobile units.
For donors who cannot donate on the holiday, may do so on any date for the balance of the month of January at the official sites.
Coalition members include fraternal, religious and service organizations in the Inland Empire such as Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inland Empire Black Nurses, Knight of Peter Claver& Ladies Auxiliary, St. Anthony Catholic Church, Eccelesia Community Church and the National Council of negro Women, both the Inland Empire Section and the Victorville Section.
