Tagney Jones Hall at the Opera Center will be home to a Bloodworks NW pop-up donor center giving our community an opportunity to donate blood. In order to follow social distancing recommendations, Bloodworks Northwest has had to cancel their traditional mobile and bus drives which account for 60% of their collections. Seattle Opera and other organizations at Seattle Center are coming together to provide space for these much needed blood drives.
At the last Opera Center blood drive, 196 people donated blood at the opera center over 4 days. 22% were first time blood donors. As many as 500 local patients may have benefited from these donations.
There is capacity for 50 donors per day and social distancing safety protocols will be in place. Special thanks to Georgetown Morgue who has donated 200 tickets for agiveaway to participants.
