American Red Cross and Bloodworks NW Announce Blood and Platelet Donations Are Urgently Needed
“Blood donations have fallen short of hospital needs for the past few months, resulting in about 39,000 fewer donations than what’s needed, as well as a significant draw down of the overall Red Cross blood supply. In addition, the Independence Day holiday may have caused many regular donors to postpone donations due to vacation plans. A recent Red Cross poll revealed that more than 75 percent of donors surveyed indicated vacation plans this summer, many of them occurring the weeks before and after July 4.”
On its homepage, Bloodworks NW identifies there is an urgent need for donations in the region. There are donation stations in Lynnwood, Everett, Bellevue, and more cities throughout western Washington.
