American Red Cross Blood Drive

Tuesday, May 31, 2022

The Town of Hingham will host a blood drive through the American Red Cross, open to all eligible residents.

Blood donations help save lives, and are desperately needed. The country is facing its worst blood supply shortage in over a decade, and eligible residents can do their part to address this serious need. Hospital patients rely on donors to help ensure blood is available for the lifesaving treatments they need. It’s one of the most powerful ways to give to those in need.

There are three ways to schedule a blood donation appointment for this drive:

All donors will be given a water bottle through the American Red Cross. 

Residents are also encouraged to follow the Town of Hingham’s Facebook page for updates about the blood drive, and to share posts to help make the blood drive as successful as possible.

Those giving blood can use RapidPass to complete a pre-donation reading and health history online before arriving at the blood drive site. This can save several minutes at the appointment. 

Anyone at least 17 years old can donate blood, so long as they are in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. In Massachusetts, a 16-year-old may donate blood as well but is required to have a consent form signed by a parent or legal guardian prior to donating. There is no upper age limit for donating, so long as the individual is feeling healthy and well and meets the other criteria.
