Burien-based church Iglesia Ni Cristo, located at 207 SW 150th Street (across from Chase Bank), is holding a Blood Drive this Saturday, Aug. 14th, from 9am – 3pm.

The summer months are a particularly challenging time for the community blood supply – fewer donors give while the demand for blood stays the same.

Your one pint donation could help save three lives, so please consider giving!

Here are the details:

WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 14th from 9am – 3pm (closed 11 am – 12 pm)
