Interfaith blood drive begins in July
 

Catholics are teaming up with Mormons and Muslims in the Bay Area to help save lives this summer. The Interfaith Blood Drive runs June 30 through July 30. Donors are invited to give at any of the locations.

The dates, times and locations listed below are subject to change. Donors may schedule an appointment online or over the phone in advance. Dial (800) RED CROSS — (800) 733-2767 — or go to redcrossblood.org (sponsor code: INTERFAITHCOMMUNITY) to schedule an appointment.

Volunteers from each participating faith organization have received training from the Red Cross. Sandy Heinisch is coordinating the effort at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Brentwood. After attending a training session for coordinators, she worked with her pastor, Father Jerry Brown, to secure volunteers to assist donors at their July 5 session. Announcements have been made at each Mass, and leaders of all ministries have been contacted in an effort to fill the available time slots for donors. Heinisch, a nurse, said she even planned to seek donors at the parish golf tournament. “Everybody knows how much I believe in this,” she said. “It’s the gift of life.”
