Memorial Blood Centers Joins Extreme Makeover: Home Edition As Designated Charity
Date:8/5/2009

ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the Emmy Award-winning reality TV series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EMHE) premieres its seventh season on the ABC network this fall, Minnesota-based Memorial Blood Centers will be among a select group as a Designated Charity for an upcoming episode that is filming over the next week in the Duluth/Superior area. The EMHE episode, air date to be announced at a later date, will put the talents of team-leader Ty Pennington, his EMHE crew, and local Twin Ports builders, contractors, hundreds of volunteers, and other area businesses to work rebuilding the home of the Huber family of Douglas County, Wisconsin in a race against time to finish a complete renovation in just seven (7) days.

"Memorial Blood Centers is extremely pleased to be part of this wonderful, life-changing event benefitting such a deserving family in our community," said Donald C. Berglund, Chief Executive Officer of Memorial Blood Centers. "As a leading provider of life-saving blood products and biomedical services to over 30 hospital partners throughout Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin, we face a demand for more than 2,700 units of blood every week and the blood drives we have the opportunity to conduct on the EMHE site will go a long way in both honoring the Huber family and meeting the needs of the people we serve."

"Every two seconds, someone needs blood," Berglund added. "And while the EMHE crew and volunteers are working to give the Huber family a life-changing experience with an extreme home makeover, donating blood--the ultimate renewable resource--is one way to give a life-saving gift to friends, family, or someone in the community as well. We encourage everyone in the Duluth/Superior area to come out and be an Extreme Volunteer: roll up your sleeves and make a donation to save a life during one of our sponsored blood drives at the EMHE site."
