Walk-in donors welcome around scheduled appointments.

Photo ID is now required to donate.

Last week, a 19 year old male at the University of Washington Medical Center received blood during a heart transplant.

58 Puget Sound Blood Center donors, who gave blood in recent weeks, supported this young man. As these generous donors were being drawn, they most likely didn’t think their donation would be given to such a young patient, but they gave blood because they knew someone in the coming days would rely on their life saving gift.

Please reserve the time to give blood at our drive next week. We don’t know yet who you will end up helping but someone will reap the rewards of you kindly sparing 45 minutes to one hour of your time. Thank you.

If you need help scheduling your appointment please call 1-800-398-7888.

12 Food Trucks will be at Opening Day of Des Moines Farmers Market June 7

From our sister site The Waterland Blog, a Sponsor of the Des Moines Farmers Market:

DMFMFoodTrucks

There’s just a little over a week until Opening Day – Saturday, June 7 – of the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market!

Coming off its most successful season in history (up +20% over 2012), the Market will be bringing in many new vendors, including farms, fresh fish, meat ranchers, unique produce and much more.

The word “Waterfront” will be prominent again at The Des Moines Marina, with boating and fishing activities along with the Boardwalk Bistro (look for new picnic benches) where you will be able to enjoy your favorite market-prepared foods.

Opening day will also feature our second SeattleFoodTruck.com Truck-In, with 10 of your favorites and some new ones.

“The market again will have many of your favorite artisans and crafters and well as some surprises,” said Rikki Marohl, market manager.

Also returning will be the market’s own wines, including last year’s favorite Waterfront White, a fabulous Riesling, with all the proceeds going toward the market’s Endowment Fund. Look for our enlarged wine booth where tasting once again is encouraged.

Don’t forget to bring your old musical instruments to donate them to the Highline Music4Life program. They will be at the market every Saturday in June. The program refurbishes the instruments and gives them to the Highline School students who wouldn’t be able to afford them. The local Rotary Club of Des Moines recently made a $10,000 donation to this wonderful program thru its annual Blues & Blues Festival held this year on August 23rd.

Wayne Corey, Board President, commented on the past two seasons at the new marina location:

“You know that old saying – location, location, location? It truly is what makes us one of the premier markets in King County. We continue to see growth in vendors, shoppers and sales. One of our goals this year is to have more activities for families. Look for more information on this blog and our website.”

The market and the Rotary Club of Des Moines, along with partner Senior Services, are proud to once again offer the HYDE Shuttle providing local transportation to seniors 55 and older and the disabled of all ages living in Des Moines, Normandy Park and Burien.

To keep up with all the special events, featuring what’s fresh and entertainment at the market, please log onto the web site and sign up for our e-newsletter that comes out once a week. You can also keep up on the activities by visiting the markets Facebook page.

See you on OPENING DAY where The Waterland Blog will be blogging live!

Help ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ by leaving food for your Mail Carrier this Saturday

StampOutHunger14

This Saturday, May 10, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will collect food donations at residents’ mailboxes in order to provide assistance to the millions of Americans who are struggling with hunger.

According to Highline Area Food Bank Director Mike Werle, this is one of the bigger – and most effective – local food drives in the region.

To help, all you have to do is put non-perishable food in one of the blue plastic bags left at your mailbox and set it out your mailbox for pickup Saturday.

Here are more facts:

  • The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is a nationwide effort that provides food to local food banks and pantries. Food banks across the country continue to experience record demand for emergency food assistance, especially in the summer months when children are out of school.
  • The nation’s 175,000 letter carriers will collect food donations left at the mailboxes of generous Americans in more than 10,000 communities and deliver them to food banks and other hunger-relief organizations.
  • The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is the nation’s largest single-day food drive, having collected more than one billion pounds of food since its inception in 1993. In 2012, generous Americans donated more than 70 million pounds of food, which marked the ninth consecutive year that at least 70 million pounds were collected.

Wonder what foods are great to donate to the food drive? Here are a few non-perishable food items requested by food banks:

  • Cereal
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Canned meals such as soups, chili, pasta
  • 100% juice
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Canned protein – tuna, chicken, turkey
  • Beans – canned or dry
