Our Lady of Guadalupe Blood Drive

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Sunday, 26 July, 2015  8:00 AM to 1:30 PM, in St Jude Hall at 411 N Rampart St, New Orleans (on the corner of north Rampart Street and Conti).

Contact Carol Hubert at, to schedule an appointment or Lois Lawrence at 504 241-1892 to sign up, volunteer, or request further information.

The Blood Center has a 2 day supply of blood for the numerous local hospitals and centers that it supports, much less than is needed. O negative blood is critically short. O negative donors who can donate are urged to help fill the void. It is crucial that summer blood drives collect the maximum number of units of blood possible.

Eat a healthy meal and drink plenty of fluids before donating. Bring photo identification. The whole donation process takes less than an hour.
