Carbajal blood drive May 11

ARLINGTON — The Carbajal family is providing yet another community blood drive in Arlington.

On May 11, the next Carbajal family blood drive will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Arlington Haggen Food and Pharmacy, located at 20155 74th Ave. NE.

Elliot Carbajal was a long-time committed blood donor who died, at the age of 40, five days after a violent assault, when he was taken off life support on his father’s birthday, Dec. 16, 2009. His family donated his organs, and has since promoted the causes of organ and blood donation to memorialize him.

In turn, Elliot Carbajal was honored for his life-giving generosity by Donate Life America, whose “Journeys of the Heart” float included a “flora-graph” of his face during its appearance in the Jan. 1 Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif.
