Today’s guest blogger is Adam Navarrete, who works in the marketing department here at Logos.
To play our part in the ever present need for blood, Logos organized a mobile donation unit from Puget Sound Blood Center (PSBC) to park outside our downtown offices this past Friday as our employees volunteered their arms—some, for the first time—and collected 19 units of life-sustaining blood.
Nearly 900 units of blood are needed each day in order to maintain PSBC’s desire to have a four-day supply of blood at all times. According to the PSBC website, “every two minutes someone in western Washington needs a blood transfusion.”
It is great knowing that PSBC, a non-profit, community-supported organization, supplies patients and hospitals in western Washington, allowing our donations to be redistributed throughout our own communities.
We were privileged to contribute to our community in a meaningful and practical way. Our one-day drive helped register 82 donors, collect 19 units of blood, and will benefit up to 57 patients! A needle prick is not a bad trade-off when a life can be saved.

Here’s a short clip of the action.
