Grand Cane Business Sponsors Blood Drive for Premature Infant Piper Pate

During the weekend of the Village of Grand Cane’s Village Market on September 19, a blood drive is being sponsored between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. by Donna Tingle, owner of Gloria’s Sweet and Sassy Boutique and Merle Norman. The business is located at 8352 Hwy 171 in the downtown village area.

Between a hurricane and a global pandemic not to mention a steep increase in unemployment blood donations have taken a hit. The blood supply has become so low that LifeShare Blood Center sent out an emergency appeal for donors for the first time in over a year. The first appeal wasn’t enough, so during the same week, they sent a second emergency appeal.

Piper Pate’s parents are more concerned with the transfusion needs of their infant that was born premature at just 27 weeks…a full 3 months early. Since the little ones birth on May 20, 2020 Piper has undergone 9 transfusions.
