Condit saves 1,000 lives.

Condit Blood Drive has saved over 1000 lives since it began in December 2014 as part of the New Beginnings Program for Condit Presbyterian Church.


During the October 13, 2017th blood drive, American Red Cross collected the 334th pint of blood which means Condit has helped save over 1,000 lives with its donations to date. Deanna Osborne was the 15th donor of the day and won the prize for her donation. Deanna used to give blood at her workplace but now she is working from home and donates at Condit. When the October blood drive ended at 6 .m. on the 13th, a possible 1014 lives will be saved from Condit donors.
“Blood Drives are one way a small church can help save people’s lives,” commented Rev. Annie Melick, pastor of Condit Presbyterian Church. Condit hosts 6 blood drives a year in the Fellowship Hall as one of their missions.

Unfortunately only 8% of the eligible donors give blood.
  This means the Red Cross is getting less blood than is needed. 
People return to give blood at Condit because we treat our donors as guests in our home and look forward to seeing them in 2 months.
