The City of Burien will be rolling up its sleeves, clenching its fists and donating blood at a blood drive on Tuesday, July 27th, and they’re looking for donors.

Then, it’ll get a cookie and maybe some orange juice.

According to a press release, levels are at a critical low:

“Currently we are at a critical level of type A positive and B positive, less than a 2 day supply.

O positive, A negative, and B negative are all at an alert level, less than a 3 day supply.

All blood types are needed – everyday!”

And yes, you can even make an appointment to get poked – please contact Janet Stallman at 206-248-5508 or email [email protected].

For blood donation and health eligibility information please call 1-800-398-7888.

The city is looking to get at least 25 donors on that day.

    I’ll be there on Tuesday!

    What better way than doing something that actually saves peoples lives? It takes just a little bit of your time and you get free cookies and juice!

    To date, I have donated over 5 gallons of A#1 High Test Steve with the Puget Sound Blood Center. I grew up watching my folks donate and remember my dad getting called in late at night to donate when there was an accident and they needed his blood. My kids can’t wait to be old enough to donate because they see me doing it.

    So come and join me at Burien City Hall.

    Cheers…Steve
