Donating blood is a simple act that can mean so much to those in need. January is National Blood Donor Month, so what better time to make a donation and impact someone’s life?

That “someone” could be a loved one or friend. It’s the time of year when local blood supplies are dipping due to high patient demand. Don’t wait until a person close to you needs blood, act now by giving at the Swedish Pop Up Donor Center on the Amazon Campus (Van Vorst & Arizona). Donating locally means there is life-saving blood product on hand, when it is needed, right here in Seattle.

All donations are by appointment only. The one hour donation appointment is a safe and essential action to support local hospitals and patients. The pop-up centers are being conducted in accordance with social distancing guidelines. No walk-ins, guests, or people under age 16 are permitted onsite. All donors are required to wear masks during their appointment. Bloodworks has posted information addressing questions and concerns for blood donors at For questions about eligibility and to make your appointment call 1-800-398-7888 or visit
