Your Community Needs You. You’re not the type to let your car run out of gas. And as a blood donor, we know you’re not the type to let your community run out of blood either. Bloodworks Northwest is asking you to donate in the final stretch of summer. Trauma cases spike significantly this time of year, and we need to ensure people have access to the blood they need. We encourage you to make an appointment to donate as soon as you’re able to. For those who didn’t get an opportunity to sign up to donate at the Ballard Elks Lodge #827, here’s your chance. Bloodworks just opened up 20 extra timeslots on September 8th – secure your appointment now before it’s all taken! Make an appointment by visiting bloodworksnw.org or call 800-398-78888. Same day appointments often available.
