Bloodworks Northwest is asking for your help! Due to the icy conditions, four high schools in Western Washington had to cancel their blood drives over the last week and a half due to school closures. These were some of the largest high schools and Bloodworks Northwest is dealing with a loss of over 400 blood donations that they expected to collect. This is a huge loss and will greatly impact the already-low community blood supply. They are asking for the assistance of community blood donors to help recover from this loss.
San Juan Island Blood Drive: Wednesday, March 14, noon to 6 p.m., Mullis Community Senior Center.
Orcas Island Blood Drive: Thursday, March 15, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Eastsound Fire Station.
Lopez Island Blood Drive: Friday, March 16, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed from 1:30 to 2:30, Community Church in the Village.
