Richmond Beach Blood Drive on New Year's Eve

Friday, December 30, 2016

By Tom Petersen

The year-end party starts early in Richmond Beach, with the arrival of the mobile unit for THE last blood drive in Bloodworks Northwest's vast territory for 2016!

Come ring out the old by wringing out some crimson for the best cause there is: saving lives.

It's milestone season for the Richmond Beach Blood Drive, too: In October it celebrated the 50th modern-day blood drive in RB, and this March it will be the 50th event at the Shoreline Fire Safety Center.

In between is this Saturday's New Year's Eve Blood Drive, and sometime on Saturday Bloodworks will collect the 1000th pint donated in the neighborhood.

Richmond Beach's bloodmobile welcomed its 1000th registrant two years ago, but because some people are inevitably deferred for precautionary medical reasons, the number of pints actually collected lags a bit behind.

Coincidentally, the same day as that 1000th registrant, Richmond Beach topped 100 gallons collected.
 
Now, it is certain that the 1000th pint will be collected Saturday.
Whoever gives pint #1000 will receive a Bloodworks goodie bag!

Many people have already made appointments but there are still spaces available, and walk-ups are always welcome and needed.

The Bloodmobile will be at the corner of Richmond Beach Road and 20th Ave NW, open from 10am to noon and 1pm to 4pm. Please bring photo I.D.

Appointments can be made online or by calling 1-800-398-7888.
