KGW news reporter Drew Carney donated blood live on the air on Friday, July 3, at the Red Cross Portland Donor Center. Guided by Daphne Mathew, our blood services Communications Director, Drew took viewers through the blood donation process, all the way up to his very own donation.
Drew’s blood donation helped jumpstart the “Live to Give Summer Blood Drive,” a partnership with the Red Cross PNW Blood Services, KGW, and the Portland Marriott. Together our goal is to collect 30,000 units of blood between July 1 and August 18. To accomplish this, we really need your help.
