To honor the memory of Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Zackari Parrish, as well as the daily service of the men and women of the sheriff’s office and Castle Rock Police Department, Littleton Adventist Hospital and Bonfils Blood Center will host two blood drives from 1 to 6 p.m. on Friday, March 30.
Parrish was shot and killed responding to a call from a gunman who lured officers to a Highlands Ranch apartment complex on Dec. 31, 2017. Three other deputies from the sheriff’s office and one officer from the Castle Rock Police Department were also wounded in the shooting. Most were treated at Littleton Adventist.
“This is a tribute to our first responders’ honorable service and incredible sacrifice, and a way for people in our community to show their appreciation for the officers who risk it all every day to keep us safe,” said Christine Miller, associate chief nursing officer and director of critical care services at Littleton Adventist. “Treating the wounded responders and meeting their families has had a profound impact on our hospital, it’s really brought home what it means to be part of this community. We hope people will come to show their support and pay it forward with a life-saving donation.”
The drive will be held at two locations:
Littleton Adventist Hospital, 7700 S. Broadway in Littleton, and Centura Health Emergency & Urgent Care, 9205 S. Broadway in Highlands Ranch.
