Is it safe to donate blood?
Yes, donating blood is a safe activity and patients need you now.
The City of Burien is happy to support and host Bloodworks Northwest at the Burien Community Center. Bloodworks Northwest is complying with all FDA, CDC, and local health departments to ensure the safety of both donors and patients in our community during the COVID-19 outbreak.

During this period of uncertainty, Bloodworks still needs 1,000 donations per day to support patients in our local hospitals who still need blood for cancer treatment, trauma, and surgeries, and we urge all who are healthy and eligible to donate blood as soon as possible to ensure the safety and stability of our blood supply. Please visit the Bloodworks Northwest website for more questions and answers for donors about coronavirus and how you can help.
You must have an appointment to donate.
We are not taking walk-ins at this time to comply with social distancing.
