ARLINGTON – The Carbahal Family Memorial Blood Drive is teaming with Bloodworks Northwest asking people to roll up their sleaves during this critical time Dec. 15.

Due to an increase in accidents and surgeries, and the decrease in donations with the holidays, the local blood supply is in great need.

“We had a loss of donations over the Thanksgiving holiday and are issuing a major appeal for blood donations,” said Gayle Richards of Bloodworks NW.

All blood types are needed, especially O+, O-, A-, B- and AB-. 

The Bloodworks mobile bus will be at the City Hall parking lot Dec. 15 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Elliot Carbajal was a long-time 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 donations to memorialize him.
