[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]According to the New Jersey Blood Donor Coalition, when blood supply shortfalls occur, New Jersey must rely on blood from other states, which may result in hospitals having less than a two-day supply on hand. To patients combating serious illnesses that demand blood transfusions it can be a grim reality, however members from the World Mission Society Church of God strive to selflessly devote themselves to donating blood throughout the year and abate these shortages. Considering that only 3.6% of the New Jersey population donates compared to the national average of 5%, the World Mission Society Church of God hopes to fill the gaps in giving and serve those in greatest need. Throughout the year, the members across 42 East Coast branches from the Church of God voluntarily unite to host large and small-scale blood drives to help reduce the blood supply shortage. Additionally, the Church of God carries out hundreds of blood drives on a global scale across more than 150 countries. The drives are created not only for members of the church, but are used to help attract and educate the communities to also donate. The motivation and inspiration for this effort is a product of the members gratitude to the Saviors Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem who have sacrificed Their own blood to give eternal life according to the scriptures. Just as physical life is sustained by a healthy supply of blood, so the Bible testifies that the blood of Christ delivered on the Passover night has the power to give eternal life to those who celebrate it. Realizing the sacrifice of God to shed blood to save souls, the members feel a great desire to share the love of Christ with all mankind by giving physical blood to individuals in need.
