St. Gabriel Youth Group Blood Drive A Big Success!
     On Saturday, March 30th, our Youth Group sponsored our annual blood drive for the Canaryville community. It was a very successful event – our goal for units donated was 70, and we ended up with 78! We had a great turnout of youth group members who volunteered to help! Those who donated blood included adults, as well as high school students from the Youth Group. We worked in conjunction with the Vitalant Organization, which meets the needs of patients in hospitals throughout the Greater Chicagoland area. Our Youth Group chose the Blood Drive as a special Lenten Project. A BIG Thank You goes out to all the Youth Group members who helped out in any way, as well as the many people who gave the “Gift of Life”. I am very, very proud of all of you who showed up to volunteer!
