    Donate at the Bloodworks Northwest Pop-Up Donor Center at Sammamish Presbyterian Church

    A message from Bloodworks Northwest:

    From July 21st through 31st Sammamish Presbyterian Church will be hosting a new Pop-Up Donor Center, providing donors a convenient, local location to donate blood. July is generally one of the lowest months for blood donation, and COVID-19 has placed increased strain on the blood supply at local hospitals.

    The governors of both Washington and Oregon recognize the crucial role that Bloodworks donors fill in sustaining community health, so leaving home to donate blood is a crucial and safe activity exempt from both states’ stay-at-home orders. Local, state, and national leaders are unanimous – donating blood remains a critical and safe activity for community health.

    “During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, many surgeries were cancelled or postponed and the healthcare system is now working hard to catch up,” said Dr. Eileen Bulger, Harborview Trauma Surgeon. “In addition, emergency surgery for serious injuries can’t be postponed and the summer season is the busiest time for our Level 1 Trauma center at Harborview Medical Center. We rely on blood donors and Bloodworks Northwest to ensure that we have the life-saving blood products needed at this critical time.”

    All donations at this Pop-Up Donor Center and our other Donor Centers are by appointment only to provide the safest donation environment and adhere to all social distancing guidelines. Additionally, no walk-ins, guests, or people under age 16 are permitted onsite. Masks are required by all donors and staff. Your one-hour donation appointment is a safe and essential action to support local hospitals.
