New Covenant in Action
Our blood drive with Versiti and Heartland Blood Centers on Friday resulted in 14 donations of greatly needed whole blood and one donation of double red blood cells for the community! The Versiti representatives were very grateful at the end of a long and hot afternoon.
A sincere thanks to all who donated their blood or helped organize the blood drive. It was a significant blessing to our community in the midst of COVID-19. May the Lord prepare us for other works of service in the coming days.
Dear New Covenant Church,
“Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.” Proverbs 11:25
The COVID-19 emergency has left blood banks in Illinois in urgent need of blood. We can help! NCC is partnering with Versiti Blood Center of Illinois to host a mobile coach on Friday, July 24, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 1 Bunting Lane.
