Requesting entire community to participate in an extraordinary cause to commemorate the
10th Anniversary of 9/11:
The Hindu Mandirs Executive Conference, a national organization representing over 600 Hindu temples across North America is setting up Blood Drives across all the temples to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11. We will join this drive, by hosting a Blood drive at our temple on Saturday, September 13th from 9 AM to 3 PM.
The American Red Cross is currently experiencing blood and platelet donations levels that are much lower than expectations. Donations were down approximately 8 % in the past 11 weeks, resulting in about 80,000 fewer donations. Therefore, starting, July 22, Red Cross has issued an “urgent need” appeal for platelet donors and blood donors all types – especially O negative, A negative, B negative.
I hope all of us will show extraordinary participation in this Blood drive in our Silver Jubilee year, and I request each community member to consider this.
Our blood drive team (Bhakti Dixit, Shruti Dixit, Karina Jindal supported by Dhaval Parikh) and I would like to thank you for all of your cooperation throughout this process. Hopefully through this drive, we will be able to impact the lives of numerous individuals all over the United States.
