On behalf of the Puget Sound Blood Center I would like to extend my thank you to the Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter for publishing local blood drive opportunities in their newspaper. Over 900 people are needed to donate blood each day in Western Washington to support patients in local hospitals. Providing information on convenient opportunities to give blood locally allows the generous residents of this area show their support for their community, and save lives. Each blood donation results in a patient living to impact those around them; they’re our neighbors, friends, relatives. Your help encourages people to give blood and allows these patients time to share their life with those around them. Thanks again, and keep up the good work!
