Black Teamsters United blood drive a huge success!
Updated On: Aug 30, 2011

On Sunday, August 28, Teamsters and their families donated blood and back-to-school supplies for needy kids at the first-ever Black Teamsters United Blood Drive and Back-to-School Barbecue.

The event took place at the Safeway parking lot in Seattle's Rainier Beach neighborhood, where the Teamsters truck and the Cascade Regional Blood Services mobile blood bank were parked side-by-side.

After making donations, Teamsters and other community members, munched on hamburgers and hot dogs and chatted with fellow Union members and local politicians and candidates. 

In total, 32 people donated blood at the event and Black Teamsters United collected 500 pieces of school supplies for needy families. 

Special thanks to both Congressman Adam Smith and Richard Mitchell, candidate for King County Council Pos. 6, for attending the event. 

Thanks also to all the members of BTU for a great event all the hard work.  Also a huge thanks to Shirley Harris of the Salvation Army for arranging the pickup and distribution of the school supplies to needy families.
