Blood Drive Tomorrow At Community Center

Tomorrow from 11-1:30pm Bloodworks Northwest is holding a blood drive at the Laurelhurst  Community Center in the parking lot, as their inventory is very low, Wendy, Donor Resources Representative, told the Blog Staff.  No appointment is necessary.

The information says:

  Facts for this month’s collection:
·         Bloodworks Northwest (BWNW) have seen 600 donors less in March than they did last year (MTD)
·         BWNW typically see an 8% drop in donations at the end of March due to finals, spring break, and Easter.
·         Between the current decrease of donations in March (8%), the expected drop due to spring break & Easter (8%), and a 2-3% decrease due to the Zika deferral, BWNW could be facing an 18% drop in donations which is over 1000 donations.  

Your gift can dramatically alter the outcome of personal emergencies and change the course of lives. It only takes 45 minutes of your time to make a big difference in someone’s life.
Donating blood takes less than an hour. It’s easy to do, nearly painless, and you can give blood six times a year. Yet fewer than five percent of the people who are able to give blood actually do so—and most of them give only once a year.
