Blood drive….coming again soon…..donate a pint (it’s painless and takes less than an hour!) or volunteer to help during the afternoon and evening hours. Held at Vashon’s Lutheran Church on the main highway every other month, on a Thursday. Neil Jungemann is our lead on this project; specific dates for 2014 will be posted here soon.
Rotary also encourages you to donate platelets and/or plasma at one of the offices of the Puget Sound Blood Center. When you give a pint of whole blood on Vashon, the staff can tell you if you are a candidate for other donations which are also desperately needed. These donations take an hour or two in Seattle or one of their other locations….parking is free & easy.
Most people can donate whole blood every 8 weeks…make this donation part of your routine only 6 times each year.
Wednesday Night Dinners Rotary takes a turn about four times each year to prepare and serve this free community meal at Church of the Holy Spirit just north of town. You can volunteer pretty much ANY Wednesday, but the ones to focus on are the Rotary nights coming up:
