Matthew Joyner entered into God's kingdom eternal on April 20, 2005. We dedicate Church of the Resurrection's Blood Drive in his memory.
Resurrection's blood drive began in response to Matthew's having needed blood for one of his surgeries. As this young man's legacy, it has grown to a quarterly drive blessing thousands with the gift of life from blood transfusions!
Anyone who is healthy, at least 16 years old and weighs at least 110 pounds may donate blood every 56 days (8 weeks). If you are 16-18 years old you must weigh between 110-115 pounds depending upon your height, weight, and gender. Specific medical eligibility questions change from time-to-time. Church of the Resurrection members who have recently traveled outside the United States should check with the Community Blood Center for answers to eligibility questions.
The blood drive is busiest between 5 -7 pm. Appointments are encouraged. Walk-ins are welcome.
If you are unable to donate but would like to participate, sign up to volunteer at the blood drive.
Resurrection's Blood Drive has been giving back to the community for more than 15 years.
