The season may be on hold, but helping our community isn’t! In partnership with Bloodworks Northwest, the Mariners are hosting pop-up blood drives at T-Mobile Park to support our community during the COVID-19 crisis. Mariners fans are encouraged to make an appointment, wear their Mariners gear, and come donate blood at the ballpark.
Due to demand from donors, Bloodworks Northwest and the Mariners have extended the pop-up blood drives at T-Mobile Park through the month of June. During this difficult time of social distancing, donating blood is still an essential and encouraged activity to help keep our communities healthy. Donating blood is a safe activity for social distancing when donation by appointment regulations are enforced.
The Mariners T-Mobile Park Pop-up Donor Center is Bloodworks Northwest's most successful Pop-up in the state of Washington. It has now been extended through June 30.
