Kitchen organizes blood drive for Craig
Thursday, February 8, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano
Council Member Ann Kitchen has an update on Senior Policy Advisor Ken Craig and information on how to help. Craig was in a serious accident last month on the Slaughter Bridge during the ice storm. Kitchen said her office is collecting cards for Craig and has organized a blood drive for March 19 at City Hall. To donate blood in his name, visit the We Are Blood website and use the group code C874. In addition, people can spread the word about this drive using this poster, or donate blood using the group code at other We Are Blood clinics located at 4300 N. Lamar Blvd. and 3100 W. Slaughter Lane. Reservations at those clinics can be made by calling 512-206-1266.
Kitchen also relayed a message from Craig, which reads:
Thanks for the prayerful support of all of you. I have been able to complete the first stage of my recovery and am now engaged in inpatient rehabilitative care. Due to the virulent nature of this particular strain of flu in the area, this being cold season, and my compromised respiratory system, my ability to receive visitors will be extremely limited.
I will always be grateful for each of you. Thank you.
