SPOKANE, Wash. - Employees at Shriners Hospitals for Children-Spokane are volunteering their time to ensure that the Inland Northwest Blood Center (INBC) is prepared for the summer.
After a national blood shortage in early February, the group hopes to stockpile as much blood as possible to proactively protect against a possible repeat shortage in the summer, which is typically a slower season for donations.
Shriners Hospital and INBC will partner to host a mobile blood unit on Tuesday.
You can donate blood from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m at the Shriners Hospital for Children-Spokane, located at 911 W. 5th Ave Spokane, Wash.
