Blood Drive: Doing a little more for Puget Sound... every 2 months
As an internal goal at P*Seattle, each member is tasked with donating at least 6 pints of blood this year, either their own or people they bring along. This isn’t a one day event, but instead an ongoing initiative for us to give back to our community in a long term fashion, while bringing greater awareness to something that often flies under the radar but is an easy thing for people add to their daily lives.
Why donate blood? Because there is a serious need:
Nearly 900 people must donate blood through Puget Sound Blood Center every day to meet the needs of local patients.

Almost everyone will eventually need a blood transfusion at sometime in their lives, so this is a chance for us to save a life today and contribute to a cause that could help us, our friends and families in the future too.
