The next blood drive is coming up on Tuesday, May 10, 1-7 p.m. (dinner break: 3-3:45 p.m.) at Cottage Lake Presbyterian Church, 18350 NE Woodinville Duvall Pl, Woodinville.

We’ll be taking platelet donations at this drive — if you’d like to be a platelet donor, or if you have questions about that, let Dewey Millar know. Platelet appointments are available at 1, 3 and 5 p.m.

An appointment to donate whole blood is not required, but it gives you priority if there’s a crowd. To make a reservation, contact Dewey,,  425-867-1781 (h) or 425-279-3731 (c)
