West Seattle’s police precinct to host special blood drive Tuesday

Holiday weekends are often a perilous time for blood supply – more need, fewer donations. Right after the Labor Day weekend, a one-day drive is planned here in West Seattle, just announced by Seattle Police Southwest Precinct commander Capt. Steve Paulsen:

On Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, we will be having a blood drive at the SW Precinct. The Puget Sound Blood Center will be stationed in our parking lot.

We are partnering with King County Sheriff’s Department, the Department of Justice, and the Ahmadiyya Muslim community as a commemoration to honor the victims of 9/11.

The blood drive will be between 10 am and 4 pm. … The donation of blood is something we all can do that is positive as well as its impact in saving lives for all people. We invite our entire West Seattle community to stop by and give a pint!

The precinct is on SW Webster at Delridge Way SW – here’s a map.

    Thank you. I can’t donate blood because of health problems, but I appreciate all who do. My blood type is B-. Earlier this summer I was hospitalized for a few weeks, and had to have 8 units of blood transfused. I am now looking at heart surgery at the end of the month, and may need more. B- is not always the easiest to get, so I appreciate all who give.

    As someone on the National Transplant list, I constantly ask people what their blood type is (always looking for that perfect donor), and I’m astounded at how many people actually don’t have a clue what their blood type is. It’s important to know. If you donate blood, you can find out easily. Please support this blood drive. It may save your or someone else’s life.
