MIT Blood Drive Appointments

American Red Cross Give the gift of life.  Give Blood.

Starve a mosquito -- Donate blood at the MIT Blood Drive The American Red Cross Blood Services has been working with the volunteer students and staff of MIT ARCTAN to collect units of blood from the MIT community. They visit MIT five times every year. We ask for your help in meeting constant demand for blood in our region. It is MIT policy to allow employees time off with pay to donate blood at the drives that are sponsored on campus. Scheduling an appointment allows the Red Cross to better prepare for the drive and will help make donations faster. Thank you very much for your time and support.

Make an Appointment for Faster Service!

Please note: you are eligible to donate if your last donation was at least 8 weeks ago (16 weeks if you made a Power Red donation).
