LAKEWOOD, WA – On August 27th, 2018 from 12pm-6pm, The RAM Restaurant & Brewery teamed up with local non-profit organizations Everyone for Veterans and Bloodworks Northwest to host a blood drive at the Lakewood RAM. In partnership with Everyone for Veterans, the goal of the blood drive was to help save lives and raise awareness of the challenges faced by combat veterans and their families, by connecting the public to those who have served. E4V was eager to find a new way to give back the veterans they care so much about, so after some brainstorming and planning, a blood drive and new partnership were in the works.
At the Blood drive, Bloodworks Northwest saw enough donors to save 51 lives. Over 40 donors, including a few RAM employees, contributed to this great effort. As a premier blood supplier reaching over 90 hospitals, the blood donated will go to those in need far and wide. The Everyone for Veterans truck was parked at the RAM, where donors and those curious about the organization could find out more about their work and how they could support veterans in their community, like how to be a part of their wingman program for veterans.
We at the RAM look forward to partnering up with Bloodworks Northwest and E4V in the future to find more ways to give back to our community!
