FERNDALE, Wash. — Officials with Bloodworks Northwest said a recent 2-day blood drive held at the Pioneer Pavilion Community Center was another success, as have other drives held there. This is important in light of significant drops in donations nationwide due to physical distancing mandates and COVID-19 concerns.
According to an email from Bloodworks Northwest, there were 69 donors over the 2 days, September 17th and 18th. There were 21 first-time and 48 former donors stepped up and donated enough blood to help 177 other people in need.
Bloodworks NW thanked the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce for their help in making the drive a success.
The next blood drive is scheduled for November 23rd and 24th. Click here to reserve your donation time online now. Donations are currently by appointment only. Call Bloodworks Northwest at 1-800-398-7888 or visit BloodworksNW.org for more information.
