HNT’s Annual Blood Drive honors the memory and last wish of Ellen Yusim z”l, a teenage congregant whose family was sponsored by our synagogue when they resettled in Seattle from the former Soviet Union. Ellen succumbed to leukemia at age 16 and it was her final request to have an annual blood drive to help others in need of transfusions.
She understood how her very life depended on donors and wished that gift to be carried forward in her name. It also honors the memory of our other loved ones whose lives have been impacted by blood-related diseases, as well as those among us who depend on a steady supply of blood.
Every day it takes more than 800 donors to meet the transfusion needs of Western Washington. It is easy to perform this mitzvah!
