Patricia Burns, daughter of ETI Professionals contractor San Juana Burns at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), celebrated her 17th birthday by donating a pint of blood at a Life South Community Blood Drive held at the USGS Center for Aquatic Resource Studies (CARS) in Gainesville, FL. Among others donating blood this day were proud mom, San Juana, along with USGS employees Carla Wieser, Ron Hill, and Hannah Hamilton, and University of Florida Department of Fisheries employees Patrick Baker and Carla Beals.

CARS hosts the Life South Blood Mobile every two months, the suggested donating schedule. Donors must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds. On this day, Patricia met both criteria.
