Ways to Help: Donate Blood

There is a desperate need for blood donations.

Considered an essential service, Bloodworks Northwest and the Red Cross continue to schedule donation appointments.

Donation appointments are scheduled several weeks out. To help maintain donor safety, appointments are spread out to ensure social distancing guidelines are met and that staff have time to sanitize between appointments. For more information about what Bloodworks Northwest and the Red Cross are doing to ensure donor safety, visit their coronavirus information pages linked below.

It’s important for donors to make future appointments throughout the month of April and May to ensure blood supplies are replenished and stabilized.
