(Washington D.C.)  Congresswoman Cathy McMorris (WA-05) will attend a public ceremony to recognize Inland Northwest Blood Center and present them with a copy of House Resolution 220: Honoring Americas Blood Centers, which she co-sponsored. The event will take place on Wednesday, January 18 at 2:00 pm at Inland Northwest Blood Center, 210 W. Cataldo Ave Spokane, WA 99201.

“I am proud to recognize Inland Northwest Blood Center for helping to meet the increased need for blood and for being a valuable part our health care system in Eastern Washington,” said McMorris. “One out of every three people will need donated blood in their lifetime. Inland Northwest Blood Center helps ensure that there is a safe, adequate supply of blood available for those who need it. They help save lives on a daily basis by providing blood, responding to emergency situations, and increasing the number of volunteer blood donors.”

Inland Northwest Blood Center is an active member of America’s Blood Centers, which is the largest network of community-based, federally licensed not-for-profit blood centers. America Blood Centers provide half of the United States blood supply, servicing 3,300 hospital and more than 150 million Americans. They have also played a vital role in responding to emergency situations and natural disasters such as the September 11th attacks and Hurricane Katrina, and have developed proposals with the Department of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services to ensure rapid response and blood support. Inland Northwest Blood Center is also a part of the “hub-and-spoke” system to rapidly respond to any military requirement for blood to support our troops.
