Have you ever wondered how much blood is collected during the periodic drives in the Bethany fellowship hall? Puget Sound BloodWorks reports that 28 donors gave 21 units of whole blood during the drive on July 24. It estimates that 21 pints will help 72 patients in the local community. The group holds drives at Bethany about six times annually, as well as at other sites around the island. Pictured on the home page: Bethany member Tad Marten is a regular volunteer with Puget Sound BloodWorks, not only giving blood but helping in the drives. He's pictured here in 2016.
