Blood Drive Organized for Bicyclist Injured during Jazz Fest

In a heartwarming display of community support, a blood drive was held at Touro Hospital for Catherine Elkins, a bicyclist who was tragically struck during the Jazz Fest.

The event, which took place from noon to five, aimed to gather much-needed blood donations for Catherine’s ongoing treatment and recovery.

Rebecca, a nurse at Touro Hospital who had hired Catherine, expressed her gratitude for the turnout and highlighted the importance of donating blood.

She emphasized that blood cannot be manufactured in a lab and can only save lives when people generously donate.

Catherine, who is still in the hospital, has been showing promising progress, thanks to her tenacious spirit and the dedicated medical care she has received.

The long-term plan is to move Catherine to Touro Rehab, which would be a significant milestone in her journey toward recovery.

The outpouring of love and support from coworkers and friends has been remarkable, as evidenced by the line of people waiting to donate blood at the event.

While the blood drive was an opportunity to contribute directly to Catherine’s well-being, it also shed light on the ongoing investigation into the hit-and-run incident.

The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) is actively seeking information about the person responsible for the accident, which occurred on April 29th at the intersection of Claiborne Avenue and Exploding Avenue.

The NOPD encourages anyone with information to contact them or report anonymously to Crimestoppers.

As the blood drive commenced, the community rallied together, exemplifying the unity and compassion that defines their spirit.

The organizers expressed their deep appreciation for the support and urged people to continue giving if they were able.

The determination to help Catherine and others in their time of need demonstrates the unwavering commitment of the hospital staff and the larger community to come together in times of adversity.

The blood drive served as a symbol of hope and solidarity, embodying the profound impact that acts of kindness can have on someone’s life.

Updates on Catherine’s condition and further reports on the blood drive will be provided later in the day.
