  • The season of giving thanks to God just getting started

    Thanksgiving is officially behind us, and I pray that your holiday was a good one. I am sure that the food was delicious, but beyond that I hope that you were able to spend quality time with family and friends and that you also were able to take the opportunity to consider what it is that you are thankful for. The end of November is a very good time of year to do so.

  • Red Cross urges donors to give perfect gift this winter

    The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give the perfect gift this holiday season – a lifesaving blood or platelet donation. By rolling up a sleeve, donors can help ensure patients continue to receive treatment throughout the holiday season.

    Busy holiday schedules and travel plans make it more challenging for regular donors to give, and many businesses and organizations postpone hosting blood drives during the holiday season for these same reasons. This can lead to a decline in blood donations, but the need is constant.
