“In 2017, 350 Seattle U students, staff and faculty registered to donate blood at the blood drives on campus,” writes Kim Gitt, area manager for Puget Sound West, Bloodworks Northwest. “Of those (who registered), Bloodworks Northwest was able to collect 300 units of blood. Since each donation can help three patients in need, the Seattle U blood drives helped save the lives of up to 900 patients in our local community.”
Each year, more than 55,000 patients need life-saving blood transfusions in hospitals in western Washington, says Gitt. “We are able to help these patients thanks to the caring and dedication of Seattle U donors!”
