Holiday Heroes Blood Drive 

A Gift of Life

 

On Sunday, December 29th, the Feast of the Holy Family, dozens of caring individuals, parishioners of Saint Anselm and residents of Brooklyn, came to Meletia Hall as participants in the Holiday Heroes Blood Drive of the New York Blood Center with a gift - the Gift of Life. Donors, many of whom made their way to Saint Anselm Catholic Academy through an afternoon of heavy rain, were greeted by members of the Saint Anselm Holy Name Society who assisted with forms and thanked the individuals for coming. Medical personnel of the New York Blood Center checked blood pressure and took medical histories before approving the participation of donors. The ample space provided by Meletia Hall made it possible to obtain “multiple products” from many of the donors, which will help make possible future surgeries in our area. Holy Name Society members thanked the donors as they left for their gift of life.
