Bloodworks NW provides 100% of the blood it collects to Lane County. Due to COVID-19, we have had to suspend all of our mobile drives (which makes up 60% of our blood collections). While we have established Pop-Up Donor Centers, we are not seeing the recovery of the 60% loss in blood collection. Additionally, hospital usage has increased by 20% during this time.
As our community embarks into the fall season, what the future holds is still unknown. The effects of the pandemic are still unfolding and our local hospitals are addressing many of our community’s needs – including the need for blood – during this busy season. Bloodworks is helping to meet the need by continuing to hold Pop-Up Donor Centers around our region through the end of the year. Help us maintain the health and stability of the local blood supply.
Every donation makes our community stronger, including those who need it most. Below are exciting Pop-Up Donor Centers in your area, where you can book your next appointment. Or, you can visit the Eugene Donor Center if that’s more convenient for you.
