SEATTLE, Sept. 28, 2020—The Museum of Flight is partnering with Bloodworks Northwest to conduct a pop-up donor center at the Museum
on Oct. 7, 9 and 10. Blood donors during this drive will receive a 50
percent discount on a future admission to Museum, plus a 10 percent
discount on in-store purchases at the Museum Store. Bloodworks Northwest
will be testing all whole blood donors for COVID-19 antibodies. This
way, donors may be able to donate plasma to COVID-19 patients in serious
need. For more information about antibody testing see Bloodworks Northwest website for details. Donation appointments must be scheduled with Bloodworks Northwest in advance.
The Museum of Flight President and CEO, Matt Hayes will be available for interviews at the pop-up donor center with Curt Bailey, President and CEO for Bloodworks Northwest on the first day of the drive, Oct. 7 between 11 a.m. and noon.
This Pop-Up Donor Center helps Bloodworks Northwest during these times when its traditional mobile testing is limited. “Partnerships like the one we have with The Museum of Flight and its supporters are very important for us to fulfill our mission,” says Curt Bailey, President and CEO for Bloodworks Northwest.
Wednesday, Oct. 7, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 9, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

What’s a Pop-Up Donor Center?
A Pop-Up is a temporary center that has the required space to ensure proper distancing for staff and donors safely and per the CDC and FDA requirements. They are at least 1000 square feet and allow for Bloodworks Northwest equipment to remain set up overnight. Pop-Up Donor Centers have been hosted by T-Mobile Park, CenturyLink Field, Cheney Stadium, Angle of the Winds Arena, and The Paramount Theatre.
