Mobile Blood Drive at Graham Auto Repair

Mobile Blood Drive at Graham Auto Repair In October I had the opportunity to meet with Racheal, the Director of Donor Resources, from Cascade Regional Blood Services. I asked her a few questions about what it is like to donate blood with them, especially with social distancing and safety measures. I was able to go down to one of their Mobile Blood Drive sites and walk through the steps of donating blood to make a video for you, and in preparation for this blog. Then, in November, I got to donate blood at our joint Mobile Blood Drive with CrossFit Deluge here in Graham, WA. Just a little bit of personal information for anyone who is reading this and may be nervous about donating blood - I was very nervous before donating blood this November!
