Lindenhurst is full of ways to give back, and is providing yet another way.
The church, located at 36 East John Street, will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Monday, September 24.
This effort is being sponsored by Saint John’s “as there's a grave shortage of whole blood at this time,” said Grace Sougstad, chairwoman for the blood drive.
The blood drive will be held in Haegert Hall of the church, which is on the second floor of the educational wing (elevator accessible), using the Dover Street entrance.
And it'll run from 2 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. that day.
Anyone 18 years old and older, or 16 and 17 year olds with signed parental consent is welcome and encouraged to donate blood at this event.
To sign up please call in advance to the church's office at 631-226-1274 or call Grace Sougstad at 631-888-8548. Walk-ins without advance sign-ups are also welcome.
For further information or directions, residents could contact the Saint John’s Church office at 631-226-1274.
