Blood drive at WSDOT Wednesday

Sunday, April 18, 2010

 By Jamie Holter, WSDOT

A blood drive reminds us that giving blood is a way to celebrate life. Every blood donor is a potential lifesaver. Every unit of “whole” blood collected is typically separated into blood’s components--platelets, plasma, cryoprecipitate and red cells-- and can benefit up to three or more patients. By sharing your good health, you not only provide patients and their medical providers a vital tool to assist them with overcoming their medical problem, you also provide some peace of mind to the patients’ friends and families as they support the patient during their time of crisis.

The Puget Sound Blood Center relies solely on volunteer donations to meet the needs of patients in Western Washington. Every day, Puget Sound Blood Center needs to collect blood from 900 donors.

Thank you for taking the time to support our community through this blood drive.
