"If you are looking for reasons to donate blood consider these four:

1.  Every 2.5 seconds someone will need blood.

2.  Each donation can save up to three lives.

3.  Members of the “On the Wings Band” entertain you while you donate in an air-conditioned room.

4.  The Drive, which is co-sponsored by the Dumont Police Department, Dumont Volunteer Ambulance Corps, On the Move Signs and Graphics, and Calvary United Methodist Church will take place in Fellowship Hall. The church is located at 185 West Madison between Cooper and Prospect streets in Dumont. 

Call 1-877-258-4825 to schedule your appointment.

Donors are reminded to eat a substantial meal or snack before donating and to drink plenty of fluids the day before, and of, the Drive. It only takes about an hour to donate whole blood (about 10 minutes are spent donating) while platelets require more time and an appointment is advised.

All blood types are needed especially O Negative and platelets.  Persons in good health as well as those whose diabetes is under control are generally able to give blood.

 

 

 Phlebotomist Melissa Barco, Donor Judy Bjorkman Parker of Closter, Rev. Elaine Wing, Captain Dave Oldewurtel of the Dumont Ambulance Corps and Dumont, and Police Officer Eric Abrahamsen pause to celebrate Parker’s gift of 62 units of life-saving blood.  Another Donor, Eleanor King of Dumont (not pictured) also gave her 62nd unit of blood to Community Blood Services at the October Drive.

SHARE SOME LOVIN’ & FOOD

WITH DUMONT SENIORS

 

On Thursday, June 18th Calvary UMC partnered with Dumont Social Services to provide some food for senior citizens living in Dumont as well as some of our church families/seniors.

A total of 75 complete meals were cooked, prepped, packed and delivered to these folks.  Many thanks to all who volunteered.  

We held similar events for 30 of our CUMC families on July 17th and our Walk in Dinner clients on Aug 26th.

 Please contact the church office to help.  Calvary185@verizon.net or 201-384-3630.
