Prior to the Thanksgiving day holiday, Bloodworks Northwest has already seen a severe drop in donations for several blood types.

We know the holiday season can be busy, but if you are going to be in town during the blood drive, would you donate to prevent blood shortages before the holidays? Blood centers across the nation historically experience severe inventory drops during this time. In less than an hour, you can give a gift that a patient will be thankful for.
