Blood Center needs donations

In the aftermath of recent events on the East Coast, the Puget Sound Blood Center is preparing to ship blood supplies to New York City.
   Donation centers in New York are functioning and no supplies have yet been requested, but a need for additional blood supplies might arise. Puget Sound Blood Center is requesting donations from area residents. The center suggests that you call before coming to a donation center or mobile unit, as these donation sites are filling to capacity. The number is 1-800-398-7888. You may also make an appointment at the blood center's Web site: is not necessary to donate blood immediately, as it is likely that blood supplies will continue to be needed over the next several weeks.
