Bridgeport Believes “It Takes A Village” To Help Support Healthcare Workers, First Responders and Restaurants During COVID-19 Response
Offers 5 Ways Local Community Can Help During this Time
(Oregon) April 15, 2020 –Bridgeport Village invites the local community to join in its COVID-19 response efforts. “We have a chance to think and do things a little bit differently right now and to support one another,” states Kimberly Blue, regional marketing director for CenterCal Properties. “As many public spaces have closed, we realized that our parking lot and vacant space not leased could be a valuable community asset. So, we are exploring ways we can help, like holding blood drives, while also adhering to social distancing requirements.”
5 Ways You Can Help Right Now
1. Give Blood: American Red Cross Blood Drive at Bridgeport Village
On April 1, Bridgeport Village hosted an American Red Cross blood drive. “Providing a large, enclosed space offered the ability to have a safe and healthy environment that meets the state’s COVID-19 social distancing standards,” states Blue. The event booked up immediately, and yielded 55 donors, 50 units collected and 150 lives saved. It was so successful; a second date was added. Following guidelines from local, state and federal healthcare professionals, all Blood Drive donations will be by appointment only.
Date: April 25, 2020
