This year, appointments are REQUIRED by the Red Cross for blood donations.

For many hospitals during COVID-19, keeping blood donations in full supply has proven to be a challenge. One in every three people will need blood at some point in their life, but right now, there are shortages across the country.

That’s why we’ve arranged our annual blood drive in partnership with the Red Cross this Saturday, January 8 from 8AM-1PM.

Your donation can mean the gift of life for our friends, family, and neighbors in need. This drive is not limited to members. Appointments are required to donate, so please register here today.

Local 537 Blood Drive
Saturday, January 8
8:00 AM – 1:00 PM
537 Training Center at 40 Enterprise Street, Dorchester, MA

People who have recently received the COVID-19 vaccine or who are not vaccinated are eligible to donate blood, provided you are symptom-free and feeling well.

Thank you for helping make a difference for those in need.
