Donate blood and get a chance to win an iPad Pro

There are still more than 100 sign-up spots to take.

Bloodworks Northwest is once again hosting another pop-up blood donation center on the Plateau.

This time around, the nonprofit is setting up shop at the Enumclaw Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (246 Semanski St. Enumclaw, 98022) on Aug. 27 and 31, as well as Sept. 2.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced Bloodworks Northwest and other blood donation organization to re-think how to do blood drives, so be prepared for a few changes.

First, walk-ins are no longer allowed — you must make an appointment by heading to https://schedule.bloodworksnw.org/DonorPortal/GroupLanding.aspx?s=2820 or calling 800-398-7888.

You must also wear a mask and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

If you donate during an August appointment, you will be automatically entered into a contest to win an Apple iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard.
