No, excuses, Shoreliners: The Puget Sound Blood Center's mobile unit will be nigh-on ubiquitous in the heart of downtown at the end of the month, with a range of times available to fit everyone's schedule.

Blood stocks typically dip to critical levels in late summer, as regular donors go on vacation, people schedule elective surgeries, and some peoples' seasonal fun gets a little too spirited. PSBC has added an "emergency" blood drive to a week of regularly-scheduled bloodmobile appearances:

MONDAY, AUGUST 25 @ ST. LUKE'S: "The Commuter" drive is from 1pm to 7pm, perfect for people stopping in on their way home from work. St. Luke's is at 322 North 175th (off Dayton). Appointments encouraged, walk-ups welcome.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 26 @ WINDERMERE: "The Emergency" drive is from 10am to 4pm at 900 North 185th. Special thanks to Jack Malek and Windermere Real Estate for hosting. Appointments available for all times; Walk-ups needed! 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27 @ WSDOT: "The Early Morning Drain" drive, from 8:30am to 11:30am is great for people on their way to work. 15700 Dayton Ave. North. Appointments recommended, walk-ups welcome.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27 @ CITY HALL: The bloodmobile moves from the DOT parking lot to the Walgreen's at 17524 Aurora for "The Lunch Break" drive from 1pm to 3:30pm. Appointments encouraged, walk-ups welcome.

Most healthy adults over 110 lbs are eligible to donate blood. Donating blood is safe and easy and takes about 45 minutes, from walking in to walking out. Whole blood donations can be made every 8 weeks; people who have already donated once this summer and are not yet eligible can plan on giving again on Saturday, September 6 in Richmond Beach, or look into going to the storefront PSBC facilities in nearby Lynnwood (19723 Highway 99) or North Seattle (10357 Stone Ave.)
