The American Red Cross has a constant and ongoing need for blood and platelet donations to meet the needs of patient care. Our Health Ministry Council is sponsoring a Blood Drive at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church. You can sign up by appointment so they can ensure safe physical distancing, and once you’re there you’ll see some familiar First UMC faces!

Sunday, September 5, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Mt. Olive Lutheran Church

1343 Ocean Park Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405
