Blood, White, and Blue are the colors of In-De-Pints Day in Richmond Beach

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Robert Shannon and Deanna Zawaideh of D'z Barbershop, along with RB neighborhood blood drive coordinator Tom Petersen. D'z Barbershop sponsored 30 donors at the 2009 blood drive with their "Clip and Drip Special: Free Blood Donation with every haircut!"

Join the civic-minded makers of bad puns and good blood this Saturday, July 3, at the Richmond Beach Blood Drive. All are welcome to participate.

The Puget Sound Blood Center's Bloodmobile will be parked in front of the Shoreline Fire Safety Center at the corner of Richmond Beach Road and 20th Ave NW to take donations on what is always a critical weekend for blood.

People can give blood between 11 am - 1 pm or from 2 - 5 pm.

Giving blood is easy. Make an appointment on the website, find the nearest donor center, convenient blood drives, or just call 1-800-398-7888.

Regularly scheduled blood drives came to Richmond Beach three years ago, instigated by Aarene Storms, the Teen Librarian at the Richmond Beach Library. When the donation events could no longer fit in the library's busy schedule, the Shoreline Fire Department welcomed PSBC to park the bloodmobile at the Safety Center. 

Since then, the Richmond Beach blood drive has become one of the most consistently successful neighborhood drives in the system, which is why PSBC is confident that the unusual step of holding an event on a holiday weekend will still bring out plenty of donors.
