Donate blood at the Issaquah Highlands fire station
January 18, 2011
There are still spaces available at the upcoming Issaquah Highlands blood drive, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Jan. 29 at the highlands fire station, Eastside Fire & Rescue Station 73, 1280 N.E. Park Dr.
All donations go to the Puget Sound Blood Center. The center needs about 900 people to donation every day so it can meet the needs of local patients.
“It’s a wonderful way to help others,” drive coordinator Kirsten Wisdom said. “This is more than a monetary donation, this could save somebody’s life.”
Appointments take about one hour and include a health check, the donation and refreshments afterward. Participants should be 18 or older. Teenagers age 16 or 17 can donate with parental permission. Go to www.psbc.org for a permission form.
Call Wisdom at 425-677-8098 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
