EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Boston Children's Hospital Bloodmobile

Saturday July 14, 2018
10:00 AM until 4:00 PM


Stop by the Library 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 olds 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. For a list of food rich in iron click here.
  • Remember to bring a photo ID with you when you come to donate.
