The following is from the Puget Sound Blood Center.
At the Lopez Island blood drive on June 3, the Puget Sound Blood Center registered 45 donors and collected 40 badly needed units of blood. This will help up to 120 patients.
A big “THANK YOU!” to all of you who braved the weather to make your blood donation and made this blood drive a success! Your donations are critical to maintaining a stable blood supply for medical emergencies and to support patients battling life-threatening illnesses.
Special thanks to Fritz Baesman for organizing the blood drive, the Lopez Island Lions Club for its support and sponsorship, and the Community Church for providing the blood drive location.
The next drive on Lopez Island will be on Tuesday, July 29, from noon to 6:00. So mark your calendars now to be a part of this life-saving event. Thank you!
