Faith Church, Kankakee and Culver’s Restaurant, Bourbonnais have again joined forces to sponsor a timely blood drive for the Kankakee area on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Now that the busy holiday season is over, there is an urgent need to increase the low inventories of blood stated Dale Huizenga of Faith Church.
Giving back to the community is a high priority of Culver’s. If we can provide an additional incentive to get people to donate blood, we are happy to provide these certificates for free pints of custard stated the owner of the local Culver’s. The drive will be held Wednesday, January 17, 2018 from noon until 5 p.m. at Faith Church, 2400 Waldron Road, Kankakee, Il.
If you would like to reserve a timeslot to give blood, please contact Dale Huizenga at 1-815-278-2259.
March for Life Chicago Board of Directors President Dawn Fitzpatrick explained that the peaceful march through the streets of Chicago is a reminder that people of Illinois and throughout the Midwest desire to change the societal perception of abortion. “Killing a child in the womb is never a viable answer. Abortion is not an acceptable solution to any problem. We believe that ‘Love Saves Lives’ and that is our theme for this year’s March. We call upon religious, civic and community leaders to renew every effort to build a nation and culture dedicated to protecting life at every stage and eliminating the violence of abortion,” stated Fitzpatrick. “Thousands of individuals and groups will come together on January 14 to proclaim that our women, men, children and families deserve better than abortion.”
