PARISH HOLDING BLOOD DRIVE FOR JJ ROBERTSON
Parish officials are urging residents to donate blood to JJ Robertson at a replacement drive in the main lobby of the St. Charles Parish Courthouse at 15045 River Road in Hahnville from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on August 3.
“We try to host at least a yearly blood drive to help out the community,” said Parish President Larry Cochran “This year, we partnered with The Blood Center to help the Saints’ biggest fan - Mr. Jarrius JJ Robertson. We have set a goal of 25 donors.”
Cochran and the St. Charles Parish Council are set to proclaim Organ Donor Awareness Month at their July 31 meeting and Robertson is scheduled to receive the proclamation in person.
Donors are asked to bring their ID and eat a sufficient meal before giving blood and can sign up by visiting the reception area on the third flood of the courthouse, emailing email@example.com or calling (985) 783-5000.
The drive will be conducted by The Blood Center. For general information on giving blood residents can visit www.thebloodcenter.org.
The mission of St. Charles Parish government is to provide high quality, efficient services to sustain and enhance the quality of life for all residents of St. Charles Parish.
