STAR 101.5's Kent Phillips has been donating blood to Bloodworks Northwest for so long that he reached the '10 Gallon Club' for blood donors the summer of 2017 - and he's STILL finding the time to give!
Kent and Bloodworks NW are asking you to give blood and provide second chances for those in our community who need them, especially during this time of emergency within our community.
Bloodworks NW is doing everything they can to keep their shelves stocked, while working to curb the spread of the COVID-19 / coronavirus. Giving blood is completely safe at this time, but if you have any questions about the process of giving blood you can visit their website here for FAQ's.
Notice for donors from Bloodworks Northwest: In order to meet social distancing recommendations and ensure the best and safest experience possible, we are asking donors to schedule your appointment ahead of time. Donations will be by appointment only. The need is ongoing, so it is even more important for donors to make appointments in the coming weeks and months to ensure a safe and reliable blood supply throughout this time. Thank you for your support!
If you haven’t donated before – it’s easy! It takes an hour from registration to cookie and afterwards you’ll feel like a hero. Your donation is key to helping people right here in the Pacific Northwest who need blood for surgery and cancer treatment.
Now’s the time to make an appointment. Visit BloodworksNW.org now to schedule yours.
