Medical Reserve Corps of Eastern Washington consists of volunteers called upon to assist in responding to local, regional, or national emergencies or disasters.

Other Ways to Give
Donate monetary funds to food banks
Why donate money?
Food banks can purchase food at a reduced rate, so your dollar goes further—helping to feed more people. For every $1 donated, a food bank can provide five meals to neighbors in need. To donate, visit your local foodbank online or in person.
Consider giving blood
Throughout the United States, blood donation centers are experiencing shortages. Blood is necessary to provide lifesaving treatments to a variety of patients. By donating blood, you can directly help others experiencing illness or injury. Consider scheduling an appointment to donate.
Is it safe?
Like other healthcare facilities, blood donation centers in Washington continue to follow COVID-19 guidelines to protect the safety of donors and staff.
