ZAH Youth Group Blood Drive
As y’all know the ZAH Youth Group is conducting a blood drive (flyer is attached) on Sunday October 1st, 2017 which is our Gahambar day from 10:30am to 3.00pm at the Zoroastrian Heritage and Cultural Center (ZHCC). The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center informed us that due to Hurricane Harvey they lost the opportunity of receiving over 3,000 bottles of blood, besides due to the holiday season coming up they require very large quantities of blood of all types.
As mentioned by them ONE donor can SAVE THREE PEOPLE’S LIVES so this is another great opportunity we have at ZAH of doing something special for our Greater Houston community after the devastation Hurricane Harvey caused. The time slots are filling up so if you would like to donate please select 3 best time slots from 10.30 am at 15 minute intervals until 2.15 pm and I can put you in the best available one. Listed below are some things to note.
