Two more blood drives scheduled for Bethany
Bethany has completed safe and successful negotiations for two more blood drives here at Bethany that will be hosted by Bloodworks Northwest.
The all-day drives will be Monday, Aug. 10, and Wednesday, Aug. 12. Go to bloodworksnw.org for more information or to schedule your draw.
This will bring to four the number of drives Bethany has hosted during the pandemic
They take a lot of planning. The regular Bloodworks Northwest volunteers all are gone, leaving others to conduct the drives. That means lots of new arrangements on its part, and lots of work on our part to make sure the premises are clean before, during and after the drives. Not an easy thing to do when you don't have a custodian on staff.
But we did it. We are convinced the drives will again have the highest standards of social-distancing and cleanliness. Otherwise, we would have been a no go.
