Snowstorm impacts local blood supply, and donations are URGENT in February! With snow and icy roads around the region, Bloodworks NW has had 800 appointment cancellations, causing the blood supply to dip to low levels.

Book your appointment today at https://dslnk.co/BloodworksWADev or call (800) 398-7888.

Local hospitals need your help fast! If you can travel safely, please make and keep your appointment, and if you are snowed in, we still need you to donate in February when this weather passes. Share with anyone you know in those areas that can safely travel to donate. 

Give blood thru February 28 and discover if you have COVID-19 antibodies. Positive donors could become convalescent plasma donors and help critically ill coronavirus patients directly.
