During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Bloodworks Northwest has temporarily paused volunteer intake for our blood drives and donation centers. As you can imagine, this is a very difficult decision and we feel it is necessary to minimize your exposure. We are still going to be collecting blood but with the minimum number of staff and individuals at the centers.
Bloodworks has been serving our community for 75 years and we will overcome this pandemic! We remain committed to providing a safe, stable blood supply to our community patients and hospitals. Stay safe, stay healthy and we will continue to keep you updated on our progress.
The first step you can complete right now is to fill out our application on Shiftboard.
Here is the link: https://www.shiftboard.com/psbc/
Once the application is completed we will add you to our contact list so we can schedule you for orientation when we start back up.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with BloodworksNW and we will be in contact with you soon.

Saving lives through research, innovation, education and excellence in blood, medical and laboratory services in partnership with our community.
Bloodworks Northwest: Because blood works miracles every day. As a unique, hybrid provider of health care services for the community, we collect, test and distribute essential, lifesaving blood to nearly 90 hospitals in the Pacific Northwest. We’re transfusion experts who consult with physicians. We’re also medical professionals who deliver clinical care to patients with blood disorders and disease. We’re scientists at specialized laboratories who support patients and surgeons at organ transplant and cancer treatment centers. And we’re a respected Research Institute studying everything related to blood. Here are some of the ways we’re saving lives every day:
Your Community Resource For Lifesaving Blood-With the help of a 250,000 registered donors in the region, Bloodworks NW collects about 900 units of blood each day. All blood receives immediate, comprehensive testing so that it can be available to 90 regional hospitals - usually in less than 24 hours after donation. We operate 11 donor centers and our mobile units travel to hundreds of blood drives every month at work sites, schools, churches, and other community locations throughout Western Washington.
Volunteerism-Bloodworks NW benefits from the dedicated work of more than 2,000 active volunteers. Our volunteers make a real difference and a vital contribution to help save lives, gain work experience, build skills, earn community service hours and feel justifiably proud about giving back to those in need.
We'll work with your schedule.
