Lane Bloodworks is your local, non-profit blood service organization providing lifesaving blood to our local community. We differ from other blood services in that we exclusively collect blood in the communities we serve. Lane Bloodworks appreciates the strong support we receive across the communities we serve. Each of these communities, though, is different – in character, interests and capabilities. In order to focus on issues that are pertinent to each community and to engage each community fully and appropriately, a Community Advisory Council operates to help maintain and expand the connected mission of each community with Bloodworks.
The purpose of the Council is to help increase blood donations, volunteer recruitment and financial donations through targeted strategies that increase community awareness, understanding and advocacy for Bloodworks Northwest, engaging and energizing both current and new supporters.
