Commemorate the Death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by Donating Blood

San Bernardino – Members of the community are invited to come out and donate blood to commemorate the death of Dr. Martin Luther King on April 8 at the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. For 18 years, the Blood of the Martyrs Committee has partnered with LifeStream to celebrate the Martin Luther King holiday and urged people to donate blood in honor of the man who gave his blood for the country. 

Committee chairperson Lois Carson said, “This year is the first time the group will commemorate King’s death in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968, with a blood drive. The Blood Drive will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. following the 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. services. Stephanie Liggins of New Hope Baptist Church will serve as onsite coordinator. The New Hope Missionary Baptist Church is located at 1575 W 17th St, San Bernardino, telephone number (909) 887-2526.
