Celebrate "62@62" and get a commemorative magnet for donating blood in Richmond Beach

Thursday, July 4, 2019

The Richmond Beach Blood Drive comes to the Shoreline Fire Safety Center -- Station 62 -- for the 62nd time on Saturday, July 6.

This is worthy of celebration, so Bloodworks Northwest hopes that your holiday weekend festivities include a stop at the bloodmobile. All donors will take home a limited edition "62 @ 62" magnet!

People over age 16 are screened for eligibility in the air-conditioned unit, where giving blood takes about 45 minutes, door to cookies. 16 to 18 year olds need parental consent; all prospective donors need photo ID.

Donations are gratefully accepted from 10am to noon and from 1pm to 4pm. The Fire Safety Center is at the corner of Richmond Beach Rd and 20th Ave NW.

Last year the Richmond Beach Community Drive celebrated its 10th Anniversary. The first two events were at the Richmond Beach Library, but later in 2008 the drive moved to Station 62 with the gracious cooperation of the Shoreline Fire Department.

Much thanks also goes to Bloodworks' longtime cooperating businesses, D'z Barbershop and Hill's Restaurant, which support the bloodmobile staff on-site.
