B1G Blood Drive recap

Bloodworks Northwest was thrilled with all the blood donations on Saturday at Peddler Brewing Company in Seattle.

Here are the final results of the blood drive:

  • Registered donors: 24
  • First time donors: 3
  • Units collected: 19

Since each whole blood donation is divided into three components (red cells, platelets and plasma) one donation can help up to three different patients. Therefore, the donations that were collected will help save up to 57 patients! With approximately 40,000 B1G alumni in the greater Seattle area, this event has room to grow.

Thank you to all who participated. Thank you to Peddler Brewing Company owners Haley and Dave Keller and to Ohio State alumni, for hosting the mobile blood donation unit.
