Bellevue Arts Museum Gets Creative to help Local Hospitals
Answering the call for much needed blood donations, Bellevue Arts Museum has partnered with Bloodworks Northwest to host a new option for blood donations right in Downtown. BAM will transform into an instant pop-up donor center experience, providing donors a safe and convenient location to donate blood. Bloodworks Northwest provides 95% of the blood used by local hospitals, and greatly needs our community's help to resume surgeries, medical treatments, and procedures that require transfusions. Bloodworks Northwest reports that patient blood needs have surged to pre-COVID 19 levels, and the supply is running dangerously low.
All donations at the BAM donor center are by appointment only to provide the safest donation environment and adhere to all social distancing guidelines. Additionally, no walk-ins, guests, or people under age 16 are permitted onsite. Your one-hour donation appointment is a safe and essential action to support local hospitals.
Location: Bellevue Arts Museum
Donation Dates: Select weekdays now through July 10

As a thank you, all donors will receive a $5 discount offer to the Bellevue Arts Museum gift shop, featuring works from local artists. Whether it's your first time donating or you're an experienced regular, consider supporting our region's critical blood donation needs in a safe, convenient and soothing Downtown environment.
