Blood Drive Gets Citizens Pumped to Help Shooting Victims


The horrific Mother's Day shooting left 19 people injured, some severely. In an effort to help the victims, folks can head to the Arts Market, near the Spotted Cat, (623 Frenchmen Street) at today’s Blood Drive. The New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic, the Blood Center, and the city came together for the event, which began at 3pm today and will go on until 9pm. 

 

“The best way to give back and help the victims of violence is to give blood and keep the replacements blood shelves stocked.  We’re putting more blood on the shelves and we’re hoping to make this an annual event as Orleans Parish doesn’t hold a lot of blood drives,” said New Orleans Musician's Assistance Fund Donor Relations Manager Erica Dudas.

 

With help from The Blood Center and local vendors, this all volunteer event is hoping to bring in 50 pints of blood, with 100 people already registered and on track to exceed their goal.  NOMAF asks that community members and advocates of the New Orleans music culture turn out to support community resilience and make a statement about anti-crime.

 

“The best way to keep our cultural legacy alive is to roll up our sleeves, give back to those in need, support a culture of caring and nonviolence in New Orleans,” said Bethany Bultman, President and Co-Founder of NOMC in a release.

 

The Blood Bus is set up now and will be open to receive donations from 3pm-9pm.  Donors can enjoy refreshments donated by George’s Farmers Market, The Fresh Market and Tyler’s Produce.  Live music will be provided by The Radiators. 

 

If you would like to donate to the New Orleans Musician Assistance Foundation to support this event, please visit www.nomaf.org.
