Purpose:
Inland Northwest Blood Center (INBC) saves lives by providing blood and services to support transfusion and transplantation medicine in the inland Northwest.

INBC is our region's only supplier of blood products, and provides services for blood transfusions, platelets and organ transplants.

Statistics:
  • INBC collects and processes close to 60,000 units of blood products annually.
  • INBC supplies blood and blood products to more than 35 area hospitals, clinics, and transfusion centers in the states of Washington, Idaho and Montana.
  • Volunteers contribute over 15,000 hours annually, supporting canteens, mobile blood drives and providing courier services.
Volunteer Opportunities:

INBC has many volunteer opportunities and positions available.  By joining our dedicated team of volunteers, you can help maintain a safe and adequate blood supply for patients in our community.  Not only do volunteers provide direct services to our blood donors, but they also play a critical role in a variety of our operations.

Canteen Service

The canteen provides refreshments to blood donors as a thank you for the precious gift of life they have just given.  Volunteers serve the donors, answer questions, and watch for donor adverse reactions post donation.  Canteen volunteers are needed at over 550 community blood drives held throughout the region, as well as INBC locations in Spokane, Coeur d'Alene, Moses Lake, Pullman and Lewiston, and weekly blood drives with area hospitals in Moses Lake, Spokane Valley, Moscow and Pullman.

Courier Service

Couriers travel throughout the Inland Northwest transporting blood products between mobile blood drives, area hospitals, and our fixes site locations.  INBC provides all transportation vehicles for this important service.

Donate Blood

INBC recruits potential donors from Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, and Montana.

Host a Blood Drive

Nearly 70% of our community's blood supply comes from blood drives at businesses, churches, schools and other community organizations.  It is only with support like yours that we are able to serve patients in need.  We understand that everyone is busy, but with a properly formed committee and INBC's support, a blood drive can take as little as a few hours, and you'll be performing a service that literally saves lives.
