St. Gabriel Youth Group Blood Drive A Big Success!
On Saturday, March 25th, the St. Gabriel Youth Group sponsored their annual blood drive for the Canaryville community. It was our most successful blood drive – 79 people showed up at the school hall, and 74 were able to donate blood! Those who donated blood included adults, as well as high school students from the Youth Group. The teens worked in conjunction with LifeSource Blood Center, which meets the needs of patients in many area hospitals. The Youth Group chose the Blood Drive as a special Lenten project. A big Thank You goes out to the 31 youths who volunteered to help that day, as well as the many people who gave the “Gift of Life”.
If someone in grades 8-12 is interested in joining our Youth Group, which focuses on doing Christian service projects for the needy, please contact Fr. Rich Creagh, the moderator, at 773-268-9595.
