University-Wide Blood Drives


WU-blooddrive-logoBlood drives are a lifesaving tradition at Washington University in St. Louis, and we invite you to get involved.  Sponsored in partnership with American Red Cross and Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center they take place four times per academic year, at seven to 10 locations across all campuses.

You can extend your impact on blood donation in the region by joining the BDLT. We raise campus awareness and education, market events, support donors and our blood bank partners on drive day, and partner with campus groups to make the university-wide blood drives an inclusive effort. If you would like to join us, apply today! Learn more about the position: Blood Drive Leadership Team

Volunteers enable blood drive locations to run more efficiently and allow donors to get in and out faster. Volunteers are needed to help with:

- Donor and walk-in Check-in
- Information distribution about the blood donation process (this is given to you upon arrival)
- Supporting blood bank staff
- Outreach and communication when locations are especially full or available for more donors
- Location set up and clean up

Volunteer shifts are one (1) hour, but you are welcome and encouraged to sign up for multiple shifts. If you would like to volunteer during the blood drive, please sign up here.
