St. Elizabeth's Blood Drive is a ministry of giving. Every year in the U.S., 5 million patients will need blood. Over 38% of the U.S. is eligible to give blood. The actual donation of a unit of blood only takes 10 to 12 minutes. The entire process from arriving to leaving takes only about 1 hour and 15 minutes. One donation can save up to 3 lives. You can donate every 56 days until you reach age 76. If you started at age 17, you would have donated 48 gallons of blood and saved more than 1,000 lives. At St. Elizabeth's, we have a drive approximately every 60 days. Dates are announced through the bulletin and the parish calendar on the website. You must have an appointment, as this is an express drive. You may schedule an appointment through the contact(s) listed on this page. Please consider saving a life.
