Blood donors needed

Bloodworks Northwest has asked our district to share that there is a critical need for blood donors. Jenni McCoy, senior donor recruitment representative for Thurston, Mason, Lewis and Grays Harbor counties, reported Bloodworks Northwest has less than a 24-hour supply of blood on hand. This shortage has left the community’s blood supply at emergency levels, meaning there is not enough locally-supplied blood to meet patient needs.

She also wants to remind everyone that there is no delay to donate blood after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
