Due to snow and icy roads, Bloodworks Northwest has lost 1,500 donations in the last several days.

Bloodworks Northwest’s blood inventory is at emergency levels — less than a one-day supply.

The Bloodmobile comes to Auburn City Hall, 25 W. Main St., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Walk-ins are welcome.

No appointment is needed. If you can’t donate today, please make an appointment soon by calling 800-398-7888. Sponsor code for this drive is 0185.

On average, it takes about 900 donors per day to maintain a healthy supply for local patients. Donors can go to any one of 12 centers, or give blood at mobile drives at schools, workplaces or community halls. Donating a pint of blood is simple to do and takes less than an hour. Frequently asked questions are posted on Bloodworks website.
