AFTER THE SNOW: Life-saving donations needed

Another regional effect of the some-got-it-some-didn’t snow – reduced blood supplies, as some donors couldn’t get around and some mobile drives had to be canceled. Antoinette points out that Bloodworks Northwest has told local donors they’re having two drives in West Seattle in the next several days, so if you can donate, please consider doing it – the blood bank is especially short on O positive and negative, A negative, B positive and negative, and AB negative. The drives are Saturday at Westwood Village (SW Barton side), 9 am-3 pm (closed 11 am-noon for a break), and Monday at Admiral Safeway (2622 California SW), 11:30 am-5:30 pm (closed 1:30-2:30 pm). Walk-ins are welcome, or you can find the drives here and make an appointment.

    Is a donor at these locations compensated with money for their blood?

    You get cookies and juice.

    And you get the knowledge that your 1/2 pint of good wholesome blood potentially help save the life’s of many people. The life you save could one of your loved ones. And they throw in juice and cookies

    They’re also incentivizing thank you with drawings for BWNW swag or on the occasion Storm bball tickets.

    I’d go donate except… wait… we STILL discriminate against gay men donating blood in 2020.

Sorry, comment time is over.
