Long Hollow Blood Drive

Blood is needed for so many Covid patients, and this is a great way YOU can help! “Blood Assurance” is a new organization hosting a blood drive at Long Hollow on May 8 from 10 a.m – 3 p.m. All of the blood donated through “Blood Assurance” will be kept in our own community, in Sumner County!
Antibody testing will be completed for everyone who donates blood, so anyone donating will learn if they’ve previously had COVID-19.

When: Saturday, May 8, from 10:00am – 3:00pm
Where: Hendersonville Campus Gathering Area

Crisis Response Team

We are now taking sign-ups to form new crisis response teams for the fall. Many times Long Hollow has the opportunity to be among the first groups to respond to crisis events and disasters, so we want to form several teams that can be ready at a moment’s notice.

These teams will seek to serve the hurting both locally and nationally, and will help with a variety of needs from recovery, to cleaning, to praying with those in need.

Join a team by filling out this quick form. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Zimmerman at kim.zimmerman@longhollow.com.
