Community Benefits from Donations to Bloodworks
Sign up online for Snoqualmie City Hall blood drives in May and June.
Snoqualmie, WA – The Snoqualmie community once again stepped up to donate during an April blood drive from Bloodworks Northwest, resulting in 221 donations over a six-day period. The blood collected is used by the 90+ hospitals in western Washington and Oregon that Bloodworks supplies. Bloodworks hopes donors will return every 56 days to regularly donate blood.
Bloodworks Needs Donations
The need for blood is constant. Keeping your appointment ensures blood for a patient in need. When you show up, you save a life!
“A small dip in donor collections is normal during spring break and other scheduled school vacations,” said Vicki Finson, executive vice president of Blood Services. “But we’ve experienced a bigger dip than expected, and when you add in the extra support needed from our blood supply as hospitals work through massive lists of delayed surgical patients with a sharp slowdown of people booking appointments to give blood, then we have a very serious situation.”
Upcoming Pop-Up Donation Centers in Snoqualmie
Upcoming pop-up donations at the Snoqualmie City Council Chambers take place May 25, 26, 27, and 31, along with June 1, 2 and 3. City Council Chambers will be open for the pop-up. If appointments are filled, Bloodworks offers a pop-up center in Issaquah May 19-20.
