Blood Center hosting drive Monday at St. Elizabeth | Community News

The Puget Sound Blood Center will host a blood drive Monday, July 28, in the Rainier Conference Room at St. Elizabeth Hospital.

Staff will see donors from noon to 6 p.m., taking a break from 2 to 2:45.

Donors may sign up by going online. Walk-in donors also will be seen, around the scheduled appointments.

During the summer months the accident rate increases 20 percent due to people being more active and a higher number of accidents occurring.  Meanwhile the number of blood donations decreases in summer, making it a struggle to maintain an ample supply.

Donations at blood drives like Monday’s event allow the PSBC to maintain a stable blood supply.

St. Elizabeth Hospital is at 1455 Battersby Ave. in Enumclaw.

Wabash Church hosts free quilt show for community

Wabash Church will host a community quilt show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 9.

There will be no admission fee, but organizers will accept a free-will donation that benefits the church’s women’s ministries program.

Community members are invited to enter up to three quilts, even if they did not make them. Quilts should be hand- or machine-pieced and hand- or machine-quilted and not mass produced. They should be clean and in good condition. Organizers hope to see bed quilts, baby quilts, antique quilts, quilt tops, unfinished quilt projects, quilt block collections, art quilts and more.

It is not be a judged show.

The show also will include demonstrations of quilting techniques, a hand-craft and cottage-industry bazaar, iced-tea patio café with bake sale, and a prayer corner.

Entry forms are available at online or in person at the church, 18325 S.E. 384th, between Enumclaw and Auburn. Entry forms should be delivered between noon and 6 p.m. Aug. 8; special arrangements can be made by calling or texting Valerie at 253-508-8452.
