Help restore local blood supplies at Richmond Beach blood drive Saturday

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Bloodworks Northwest has already sent emergency shipments of blood components to Texas.

Units from Bloodworks were among the first to reach flood-ravaged Houston over the weekend.

“While our primary mission supports local patients, when catastrophes happen we do whatever we can to help -- even when local supplies are as tight as they’ve been in recent weeks,” 
James P. AuBuchon, MD, president and CEO of Bloodworks said, “It is our amazing donors who make it possible.”

“We’re asking local donors who have not donated recently -- regulars and first-timers -- to help us restore local inventories by donating this week,” AuBuchon said.

“Having seen the images from Houston, we need to be ready to respond if additional shipments to Texas are needed in the days and weeks ahead to help people recover from the devastation caused by Harvey and its aftermath.”
