Illuminating Women Special Public Announcement

Blood Drive

Illuminating Women is committed to making an impact in our community. With our upcoming March 7th 2020 Conference being postponed to a later date, you can still make an impact as a Women of Influence, by donating blood with Bloodworks NW

It takes 1,000 people showing up to donate at a donor center or blood drive every day to keep our community’s blood supply at stable levels.

Bloodworks officials are concerned that as fears of coronavirus heighten, low donor participation will harm the blood supply. “We can’t allow what’s happening to blood inventories in other countries affected by COVID-19, where they’re seeing sharp declines in donation, to happen here,” said Curt Bailey. “Our community strives to maintain a four-day supply of blood. A sudden drop in the blood supply will have consequences and put surgeries and patients at risk. If you’re healthy and haven’t donated recently – or you’re a first time donor – please make an appointment this week and plan to be a regular donor so the blood supply is always strong.”

A blood drive is coming to your area next week.

Please consider donating if you are able.

Sign up at: BloodworksNW.org, 800-398-7888, or text bloodapp to 91985 to receive a link on your phone.
