Thank you from our most recent blood drive

Update and a thank you from our most recent blood drive.

We ended up registering 177 donors and 23 of those were first timers – wow, that is amazing! In addition, we had a very low deferral rate so we were able to collect 150 units of blood components. That is A LOT of local patients that will get impacted because of your organization.

From everyone at Bloodworks Northwest, including patients and hospital partners, we want to THANK Ballard Elks Lodge for continuing to step up to help our community. All types of blood donations are critical for the health and safety of our community, and your contribution from planning & prepping for the Pop-Up event to recruiting donors is measured in the remissions, recoveries, and second chances you help create.

Since donors can give every 56 days, that means these donors will be eligible to give again in July. Swedish Medical Center (Ballard) will be hosting a Pop-Up in July.

Thank you members for helping.
