Nearly 100 donors give 89 units blood to support community health needs
The Bloodworks NW blood donation drive held at the Kenmore Community Club Dec. 5, 6, 7 produced 89 units of lifesaving blood, and help maintain the critical blood supply needed for patients at community hospitals in King County.
"Another great three days shared with you this week!" Karen Chernostsky, Community Engagement Liaison for Bloodworks NW wrote in an email. "Thanks for opening your doors, sharing your space, and allowing the Kenmore/Bothell community to help save lives as blood donors. The numbers above didn’t max out our capacity, but nonetheless are impressive! The blood collected is already on its way to area hospitals to help save lives!"
Each blood donor is able to give blood once every 56 days, or about every other month. Those who gave blood in December will be eligible to do so again in early February.
The Kenmore and Bothell communities currently have many blood drives planned. Dec. 20 at the Bothell Police Department or Dec. 22-23 at Northshore Fire Station 51 If you would rather kick off 2023 and donate Jan. 20 at Bothell City Hall or Jan. 24-25 at Northshore Utility District , all are options to help save lives by providing blood to Pacific Northwest hospitals!
The next blood drive at the Kenmore Community Club will be April 10 & 11.
