Blood Drive AND Diaper Drive!
In 2015, Casey Cattell not only became a first-time mother, but she also became one of the many faces of the Maternal Health Crisis in the United States. It would be an understatement to say she had a challenging pregnancy and postpartum, dodging death not once, but twice. Blood transfusions were one of the crucial elements to saving her life- she received at least 15 units which is more than her entire blood volume- and she is now holding blood drives to support Maternal Health Awareness to pay the gift of life forward.

Track Friday Results: Thousands of Diapers!
Led by AECDC Board members Laura Gordon and Dana Schrager, we finished in 6th place out of the 55 different fundraising groups who participated. Not only did we raise over $1500, we also collected over 20 boxes of diapers! $300 of these donations helps keep open our small but essential office; $1,200 translated into another 100 boxes of baby diapers (purchased wholesale). Each box includes about 100 diapers ... that means our little ‘walking effort’ provided over 10,000 diapers to people who need them!
