Our Flickr site has blown up with all of the latest Red Cross action! If you’ve been following the blog, you know that Blood Services hosted multiple Thanksgiving Day blood drives in Vancouver, Salem and Portland. All were incredibly successful…and Portland’s drive was calculated as the largest ever accomplished at the donor center!
Also, our Regional CEO for Blood Services went out to celebrate years of support with Ben and Jerry’s at our latest “Pint For Pint” drive (see photo above). With last Saturday’s drive marking the most recent partnership, the scoop shop has donated nearly 900 pints of ice cream! We can’t begin to say how much we appreciate their help!
Drives like these help the Red Cross make it through the challenging winter months, when many people require blood, and when more donors tend to be too busy, out of town or sometimes too ill to contribute. Call 1-800-RED CROSS or schedule a donation online, and check out the rest of the photos on our Flickr site!
