St. Mark Presbyterian and the American Red Cross are hosting a blood drive on Sunday, August 16th from 8:30 – 1:30 pm in Gleason Hall at 601 Claymont Dr. Ballwin, MO.   Please help us help others by making an appointment today at  and enter:  Saintmarkpres .  

For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service to our donors. This testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to this coronavirus.  An antibody test screens for antibodies in your blood, which are formed when fighting an infection, like COVID-19. An antibody test assesses whether your immune system has responded to the infection, not if the virus is currently present. The COVID-19 antibody test is authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and may indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the coronavirus, regardless of whether they developed symptoms.  The results of your antibody test will be available by logging in to your Blood Donor account on the Blood Donor App or online about 7 to 10 days after your donation.
