From The Olympian:
“Western Washington’s blood supply has been reduced by a spike in demand over the past 10 days, prompting the Puget Sound Blood Center to call for donations.”
“It takes more than 900 donor registrations per day to maintain an operational supply in western Washington, the release said.
Donating blood takes less than an hour. Each donation of one pint can potentially save three lives.
Anyone interested in donating can schedule an appointment by calling 800-398-7888 or visit www.psbc.org for donation centers and hours of operations for walk-ins.
There is a donation center in Olympia at 1220 Eastside Street SE, 360-352-1100.”
