Blood drive at Bethany nets 27 units

main image

Good morning,

Bethany offers space to a number of community and nonprofit groups during the week. Puget Sound BloodWorks is among them, visiting Bethany about a half-dozen times a year. At its most recent drive on Sept. 29, 32 people donated blood, including one first-time donor, according to the organization. It appears there’s a community of donors that give regularly. Those who gave blood at the drive gave a total of 27 units, which Puget Sound BloodWorks estimates will serve 90 patients.

In all, Puget Sound BloodWorks has 230,000 registered donors, and the blood collect serves 90 hospitals in the Northwest. Three thousand volunteers help.

main image

Good morning,

Many Bethanians have asked how they can help victims of the recent hurricanes and earthquake. The Northwest Washington Synod sent the following information this morning on how to help through Lutheran Disaster Response and the synod. If you are seeking a service opportunity, visit elca.org. Questions? Call the Bethany office.

Rachel Pritchett, office administrator

1. Give through Bethany making checks out to Bethany Lutheran Church and putting Hurricane Response in the memo line.

2. Send your contribution directly to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, ELCA Gift Processing Center, P.O. Box 1809, Merrifield, VA 22116-8009.

3. Send your contribution for the Mexican earthquake to the Northwest Washington Synod, 5519 Phinney Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98103. Those funds will go to the small town of Jojutla, in the state of Morelos. Two pastors in our synod are originally from Jojutla.

Thank you for your support,

Rachel Pritchett, office administrator
