Pastor's Message


April 2015

Greetings Friendship Family,

Thank you and congratulations on a most successful Blood Drive!  I wanted to let you know that there were:

  • 85+ signups
  • 61 donors present to donate
  • 55 pints of blood collected
  • 165 lives potentially saved by our donations


We made our goal of 40 pints in 40 days during the Lenten Season; what a gift to local patients during Holy Week.  


Though that’s good news, here’s greater news! Friendship hosted this blood drive to help our local sickle cell patients who require regular blood transfusions. The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas, CBCC (not to be confused with the American Red Cross) supplies blood to our local hospitals and its patients. Out of the 55 units, 17 will be used for local sickle cell patients. 


Thank you so much for your dedication in signing up during the last several weeks.  I appreciate all of your time and effort.  Also, thank you, on behalf of our hospitals and patients, for making our drive a tremendous success! 


-Pastor Jones
