Blood Bank issues urgent appeal for additional donors in wake of Aurora Bridge tragedy

Thursday’s tragic motor vehicle accident on the Aurora Bridge is making major demands on the local blood supply. Bloodworks Northwest has issued an urgent appeal to blood donors to help meet those critical needs.

“To avoid a crisis for the local blood supply we’re asking donors who have not donated recently to schedule an appointment as soon as they can at one of our 12 centers, or to find a mobile drive in their community close to where they live or work. There is a special need for O-positive and O-negative blood types,” said James P. AuBuchon, MD, president and chief executive officer of Bloodworks Northwest.

The bloodmobile will be stationed in the upper level parking lot of the Town Center at Lake Forest Park, near Third Place Books, on Saturday, September 26, 2015, from 10:00am to 4:00pm (closed 12:00 to 1:00pm). To sign up, call 1-800-398-7888, or reserve an appointment online.

Participants are required to present photo identification in order to donate.
