UUCSW Announcements

Boston Children's Hospital Blood Drive

Aug 19 & 22

It's time to join forces to help those in need! Corinne required more than 200 transfusions while undergoing treatment, thanks to donors like us, supplies were there. Summer weather means fewer donors right now, we can show our support with these 2 Tatnuck drives. Share this email with family and friends to give patients a much needed boost. 

***Please use this link to donate on Saturday August 19th and use this link for Tuesday August 22nd. If you donated at the June drives you'll be eligible for these drives. Those who donated on Tues June 27th will only be eligible for the Aug 22nd drive.

If you have any eligibility questions or any questions about donating please call the donor center at 617-355-6677, closed Mondays, or visit their website by using the link above. Please know that the Boston Children's Hospital Blood Donor Center staff will take care of you, they are amazing. Help get the word out and share this email with friends and family to help ensure patients feel our support. 

Thank you in advance for stepping up!

From the Racial Justice Committee:

Infant Clothing Needed! You are invited to help us answer the call from Dr. Sara Shields from the Family Health Center of Worcester (FHCW) https://fhcw.org/  Recall that Dr. Shields spoke to us this past Spring during a Sunday service about maternal health and infant mortality. The FHCW Baby Shop is running low on supplies. We have collected and donated items in the past. The Baby Shop is currently in need of infant clothing sized newborn through 24 months. The Racial Justice Committee sees this action as a nod toward helping those harmed by social systems that created unfair circumstances. Collections will be Sunday August 20 immediately before and after the service; and again, on Thursday August 24 during the traditional SMOC collection time. Stay tuned for a September collection date. For alternative drop off arrangements please contact Pauline at [email protected]; for other questions please text/call Nancy at 508-259-0923. Thank you!
