March 27 Blood Drive at Gate City 10:00am-6:00pm
Be Your Brother and Sisters' Keeper. We'll Provide the Beer.

Become Part of the Team

Each of our religions teach that "We are our brothers & sisters' keeper." (Note 1)  Knowing the giving blood saves lives, including patients at Wellstar North Fulton Hospital, and with only about 1 in 3 people able to donate blood (Note 2), here's how everyone reading this article can help:

If you can't give, convince a friend, employer, coworker or family member to schedule an appointment for Monday, March 27.  Be a "keeper" by proxy.

If you can give, be a "keeper" by making an appointment for yourself to roll-up your sleeve.  

On the 27th, you will rest peacefully that evening because you made a difference. You are your brother and sisters' keeper.....with the added reward that you or your friend will be gifted a pint of beer.  

Note 1:  The Bible story of Cain and Abel (Genesis 4:1-13), Cain was so angry and jealous of his brother Abel that he killed him. Afterward, when G-d asked "Where is Abel?" Cain said he didn't know. That's when Cain asked, "Am I my brother's keeper?" But he was really saying, "My brother is not my problem."
