Our Second U.S. Servas Peace Initiative!

Hi Friends!

We just wrapped our Second U.S. Servas Peace Initiative earlier this week. We had about half a dozen people give blood through our local blood bank’s Bloodmobile. We feel like we were successful and hope to host another Blood Drive in the future.

The Bloodmobile parked in our office parking lot, Arcata, CA.

We encourage you to donate blood if you are physically able through your local blood bank or set up your own volunteer peace project. Helping others spreads peace and friendship, which are the two main goals of Servas!

Happy holidays!
