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


2020 Drives Cancelled

Due to COVID-19, and the related closure of campus, and cancellation of activities, our planned drives for May through the end of 2020 hasvebeen cancelled. It is too soon to know the status of our February 2021 drive, but we'll post information when we know more.
If you would like to donate blood in the mean time, you can search the Red Cross site for drives in your area (anywhere in the United States). Local area hospitals may also be accepting blood donations. For those of you who are on campus and considering donating blood, please make sure that you do not violate any of the terms of the agreement that allows you to be on campus in the process of donating.
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.
