Blood Drive Friday 8/14

COVID-19 has severely impacted our communities. Lives have been lost, jobs have been lost, and our normal day to day routines have been altered. The road to recovery won't be easy, but together we can ease the process. Every ounce of help that can be offered will help fix the problem. Even if it doesn't help you directly you could be positively impacting someone's life. Every person that donates blood can save up to 3 lives. Here is your chance to lend a helping hand. May Allāh safeguard all of us during these times. Aameen
