Donating blood – a St. Paul tradition

Mission | March 25, 2020

St. Paul hosts two blood drives a year for the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. On average, St. Paul people donate about 40 units of blood at each of the two blood donor days. We hope we will still be able to hold our spring drive, now set for the afternoon and evening of May 20.

If you plan to give on May 20, great! We still have our goal of 40 units for that day – a goal that will be really important to meet. The blood drive is important in order to help keep the supply steady. Sign up at

If you decide to donate blood to help the blood center maintain adequate levels during the Coronavirus response, mention that you are giving on behalf of St. Paul Lutheran Church. To sign up to give at one of the two centers in Davenport or the center in Moline, visit
