Save a Life This Summer: Donate to Boston Children’s Hospital Bloodmobile

Posted by switham on

Stop by the Library on Saturday, July 14 between 10 am-4 pm and hop on the Boston Children’s Hospital Bloodmobile. A short 30-minute whole blood donation can help as many as 4 children.

To donate you must be in good health and weigh at least 110 lbs. In MA, 16 year old may donate blood but are required to have a consent form signed by a parent or legal guardian prior to donating. Print a copy of this form if you need it. If you are 17 and older, you just need to bring a form of photo ID with you.

How to Prepare to Donate Blood:

  • Make sure you are well hydrated at the time of your donation. Try and limit the amount of caffeinated beverages you consume prior to giving blood.
  • Do not donate on an empty stomach. Eat a good meal at least three hours prior to giving blood.
  • Get a good nights rest prior to coming in to donate.
  • If in the past your hemoglobin has been low, you can raise it by eating iron rich food.
  • Remember to bring a photo ID with you when you come to donate.

Walkins are welcome, appointments are preferred. Schedule an appointment now!
