The summer season officially kicks off with the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, but so too does the traditional drop in blood donations.

Help combat the blood donation slump by donating at St. Alphonsus’ Annual Blood Drive on Sunday, June 3, from 7 a.m. to noon in the Small Gym (under the new side of the church).

Despite miraculous advancements in medicine, there is no substitute for human blood. The need for blood products occurs in persons of all ages, from premature infants to the elderly.  

To schedule your lifesaving appointment, please log on to and enter sponsor code G0040043 or contact Barb Sippel at 724-561-4092. Walk-ins are welcome also.
