We’re excited to announce that Rose City Futsal-West (Tigard) will be hosting a Pop-Up Blood Drive starting next Monday with Bloodworks Northwest! We have 9 dates to choose from (5/25, 5/28, 5/30, 6/1, 6/4, 6/6, 6/8, 6/9 & 6/10) so schedule your spot today.
FYI, all blood donation appointments are pre-scheduled to ensure both safe social distancing and a safe, controlled experience for all donors and staff. Check out some info below from Bloodworks Northwest about why blood donations are so important right now:
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the Pacific Northwest in different ways, and the safety and health of our community is our immediate priority. The number of new coronavirus cases in our region has been declining recently, which means that soon, hospitals will once again be able to begin performing elective surgeries which were cancelled or delayed during the first weeks of the COVID-19 outbreak in a successful effort to stabilize the blood supply. The resumption of these surgeries will increase the demand on the local blood supply – in addition to cancer, trauma, transplant, and critical surgery patients that blood donors always support – and to meet that challenge, Bloodworks needs all of us to step up.
Pre-book your donation now to make sure patients get the fighting chance they deserve. All types are urgently needed, but Type O is especially in demand. Let’s do this, RCF!
