A key to our TEAM success will be continuing our district-wide service project by working together by organizing blood drives. Let’s set some goals that coincide with our 100th anniversary. Can your Region raise 100 gallons of blood? It takes eight pints (a typical unit for donations) to fill a gallon. Could your ZONE host a few blood drives and reach that mark? And while people are coming to donate blood, why not host a vision screening at the same time? Service + Visibility = NEW MEMBERS. In Regions 1 and 2, blood drives can be coordinated with the South Bend Medical Foundation by contacting Christina Tembo, Manager Blood Donor Recruitment at 574-204-4250 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Foundation will have their vehicles travel approximately an hour and a half from South Bend.
