Your chance to help: give blood Saturday

Tom's ready to give!
By Tom Petersen

Halloween’s over. Put away the fake blood and break out the real thing!

The Puget Sound Blood Center looking for a big turnout Saturday, November 3 in Richmond Beach.  The mobile unit will be at the Fire Safety Center at the corner of Richmond Beach Road and 20th Ave NW, from 10am to 4pm.

Donors are particularly needed in the hour after lunch, 2pm.  Appointments can be made online, but walk-ups are welcome any time. 

Disaster relief, too
Hurricane Sandy caused the cancellations of hundreds of blood drives in communities in the eastern US, so in the coming weeks it will be critical that all other agencies maintain their own supplies and also collect extra to ship to storm-ravaged neighborhoods. Giving blood is a uniquely valuable charitable contribution to our fellow citizens.

Roll’em up on November 3! Remember, every pint helps save three lives!
