Blood Drive Honoring Michael Sot sponsored by Garwood KofC @ Church of St Anne | Garwood | New Jersey | United States

The Garwood Knights of Columbus welcome friends and our local communities to donate and help save lives in Honor of Michael Sot. We like to thank Michael’s parents and family for allowing us to Honor Michael.

Michael Thomas Sot was a loving, smart, responsible and always caring son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson and friend to all who knew him! Michael was a 2017 Arthur L. Johnson HS Honors graduate and lifelong Clark resident. At 20 yo he was a college sophomore at The College of New Jersey majoring in Math. He joined the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. Early December 2, 2018, he was a designated driver for an off-campus frat event when tragedy struck. He, three frat brothers, a sorority sister, and another college student were hit by an alleged impaired driver. Two days later, Michael died. During his hospitalization and the other victims care, they needed multiple life-sustaining blood transfusions. Volunteering your blood could help so many like Michael. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Did you know 1 in 7 people entering the hospital need blood? Only 10% of the eligible population donates blood.
When you donate blood, it doesn’t just help people during disasters. From surgery to fighting cancer to giving birth, blood donations are used to save around 12,000 lives a day. A lot of the medical care we take for granted wouldn’t exist without blood donations.

Blood Drive held at St. Anne’s Garwood. Park in the lot and follow signs to Bethlehem Room.
