Shoreline responds to post-hurricane blood emergency

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

By Tom Petersen

A near-capacity 28 people came to donate blood at the Shoreline Fire Safety Center on Saturday as the call for help went out nationwide in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

The Bloodworks Northwest mobile unit collected 25 pints of blood, which, split into components, can help as many as 75 people.

Many thanks to those donors and to Shoreline Fire Department, Hill's Restaurant, and Owen Petersen for helping host the blood drive.

The effects of Harvey will be felt for weeks or months to come. Blood donors will be needed on a continuing basis; prospective donors can check NW Bloodworks for mobile drives and/or donation center open hours.
