Another blood drive?
Yes! There is a constant need for blood of various types in our community, so we periodically host blood drives to make it convenient for folks to donate. That’s why on Thursday, January 21st, a mobile donation unit from Bloodworks Northwest (Formerly Puget Sound Blood Center) will be stationed in our parking lot from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. We are welcoming folks from nearby businesses, our patients of age and their family members, as well as anyone for whom this option would be convenient. The good news is that if we fill up all of our donation slots, they’ll provide us with a much larger mobile unit next year so that we can help even more folks!
Bloodworks Northwest: who they are and what they do:
As a unique, hybrid provider of health care services for the community, Bloodworks Northwest collects, tests and distributes essential, lifesaving blood to nearly 90 hospitals in the Pacific Northwest. They also conduct valuable research in the various aspects of blood collection, storage, delivery, and care of hemophiliacs. You can read more about the research here.

You may just be surprised by how easy and rewording it is to do a blood drive donation. If you are, it may be habit forming! Thanks in advance to those who participate.
