Three Days Left to Sign Up - Be a Hero, Save a Life

Neill Public Library will once again host the Inland Northwest Blood Center (INWBC) for a blood drive on Monday, September 28, 2015 from 2:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. As the only supplier of blood and blood products for area hospitals, each blood donation has the potential to save 3 lives.  The blood supply will run short as we head into the fall and winter months due to holidays, travel, inclement weather and illness. You can help to make everyday moments possible for patients in need. 

Appointments are scheduled every 15 minutes; collection will be drawn in the INWBC bus parked outside the library on Olsen Street.  Donors should arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete the registration process with an INWBC staff member inside the library’s Hecht Meeting Room.

A special appearance by the INWBC Blood Drop and Mayor Johnson will happen during the 9/24 Thursday 10:30 storytime.  The same Blood Drop character will be present to greet donors on the day of the blood draw.

Patrons and staff interested in signing up to donate should contact Lori Lewis at (509)338-3269.  The pre-registration period ends at close of day Friday, 9/25.
