Congratulations Danielle Rallings –1000th donation!
Community involvement is one of the main pillars of support that Lane Blood Center is reliant on to operate. While Lane Blood Center operates throughout Lane County with dozens of organizations and schools, the great people at Northwest Community Credit Union continue to organize awesome blood drives that exemplify the level of community support, outreach and the feel-good atmosphere that blood donation is all about.
Since we began partnering with NWCU ten years ago, we’ve held 45 blood drives and gathered nearly 1,000 units of blood. 1,000! The goal for this drive is to finally break the 1,000 donation mark.
“I look at it as an easy way to make a big difference” said Northwest Community Chief Financial Officer, Pat Force. “What I like about supporting the blood center is that you truly help to saves lives”
This Friday, July 20th Lane Blood Center and NWCU are teaming up again for what we hope will be another extraordinary blood drive.
To up the ante this year, local television’s Renee McCullough of KMTR, Eugene Emeralds mascot, Sluggo, and Lane Blood Center mascot, Buddy, will all be making guest appearances. And Dari Mart–Lochmead again offers donors Life’s a Treat* vouchers, redeemable for free Lochmead Ice Cream.
When: Friday, July 20th 11am-5pm
Where: Northwest Community Credit Union – Gateway Branch
