Puget Sound Blood Center is kicking off its initiative to maintain an adequate blood supply throughout the summer, when donations traditionally drop off and trauma cases increase by 20 percent.
Called Give Twice, the campaign, now in its third year, asks donors to give blood between June 13 and Aug. 7 and again 56 days later — the soonest allowable — between Aug. 8 and Oct. 2.
