Family makes it their mission to donate blood

For decades, members of this special family have been helping the Portland community by donating blood in January, a time of year when the need for blood is great.

The beginnings of this family tradition can be traced to the 1970s. Sam Weiss, the family patriarch, recalled, “My father came to my sister and I, and said, ‘I’d like to start a family tradition of a New Year’s Resolution of life by having all the members of the family donate.’”
