Giving Blood is Necessary and Important
Did you know that every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood? Bloodworks Northwest supports 90 hospitals and 800 donors a day are needed to maintain the blood supply for those 90 locations alone. Your generous donations will be used for surgeries, organ transplants, treatment for trauma, bleeding disorders and cancer treatments. One persons donation can save up to 3 lives!
Giving Blood is Fast, Safe and Easy
Donating blood will take less than an hour, during the process a trained professional will use sterile equipment to draw one pint of blood.
Who Can Donate?
- Anyone who is in good health, 18 years or older and weighing at least 110 pounds.
- Minors, ages 16-17, who meet weight requirements may donate with a Bloodworks permission slip that has been signed by their parents or guardian. Minor weight requirements are at least 114 pounds for males and at least 125 pounds for females.
