Bloodworks Northwest has sent 130 units of blood to SunCoast Blood Centers in Florida to help the region as many of their blood collections sites are not operational during their recovery efforts from Hurricane Ian.

However, sending these shipments has depleted local supplies.

“It will take a steady stream of donors over the next several weeks to help replenish blood inventory for the PNW area,” officials said.

Burien Elks will be hosting the next Pop-Up @ Burien event in its dining room on Thursday, Oct. 13 and Friday, Oct. 14, 2022.

They have 9 available appointment slots for Thursday, and 26 slots for Friday.
