Where to donate blood in Seattle

Donating blood is an effective way to give back to the community.

We know it’s vampire season, but Dracula isn’t the only one on the hunt for healthy veins this week.

Washington’s emergency blood supply is running dangerously low and now would be a good time to help.

If you’re up to donate, Bloodworks Northwest has multiple locations across the region. Type O donors are especially in need, but all blood types are welcome to give.

You can also find an American Red Cross blood drive that’s close to your home or workplace, then choose an available time. Before you go:

Expect a short physical (temperature, pulse, blood pressure check, and a small finger prick to check your hemoglobin levels).

If you’re cleared to donate, sit back and relax — it’ll be over before you know it. And you may get a cookie at the end.
