REMINDER: City holding Blood Drive this Thursday at City Hall

REMINDER: The City of Burien will be hosting a Blood Drive at City Hall this Thursday, Jan. 23, and humans with blood are needed!

The Puget Sound Blood Center is still trying to recoup from holiday blood collection losses – 7 out of 8 blood types are below levels needed to maintain an adequate blood supply for local patients (please see updated chart below).

On Sunday, a 48-year old male received blood from Puget Sound Blood Center donors at Virginia Mason, due to a gastro-intestinal bleed. It took 32 donors just to support this one patient.

Please consider attending the drive below and help restore supplies to ensure a plentiful amount of blood for our community for whoever may need it next. Every 2 minutes someone in Western Washington needs a blood transfusion. Thank you.

EmilyAnn2

A fundraiser Bake Sale will be held this Saturday, Jan. 18 for Emily Ann, a victim of a DUI crash on New Year’s Day that paralyzed her from the waist down (read our previous coverage here).

Early on New Year’s Day, a suspected DUI driver crashed into a tree while traveling northbound on 12th Ave South near 112th Street in Burien, killing one passenger and seriously injuring three others.

Emily Ann was one of those passengers, and she is now paralyzed from the waist down and recovering at Harborview Medical Center.

Doctors have given her a 9% chance of a full recovery.

“Emily Ann is a strong and beautiful girl, and she has many challenges ahead,” said Molly Mcneff. “Please help raise money to make those challenges (and her medical bills) a little easier on her family.”

The Bake Sale will be held all day at Burien Press, located at 423 SW 152nd.

Date: January 18, 2014
Venue: Burien Press
