Houchin Community Blood Bank has a program specifically for religious organizations and churches called The Spiritual Connection. Account Manager Hania Jakyma meets with interested groups across the county to get all faiths within the spiritual community involved in helping provide the blood supply needed to help people in need. Blood drives can be held on Sundays, another day of the week, or evenings depending upon when members are available to donate. All materials needed to advertise a blood drive are provided, and drives can be scheduled just once or up to six times a year to get members donating as often as possible.
The goal of The Spiritual Connection is to be successful in “Connecting Hearts for a Stronger Community” through blood donation. To be one of the many spiritual groups hosting these exciting drives, or to gather more information, contact Hania Jakyma at 661-342-3658.
