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:
- Read up on requirements to see if you’re eligible.
- Learn the basics.
- Complete a donor history questionnaire.
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.
