Blood 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.
Blood Drive Updates in Response to COVID-19
In order to reduce risk to our community and minimize the spread of COVID-19, Washington University will not be hosting Blood Drives in fall 2020.
Although we will not be hosting drives on campus, donors may opt to give at permanent blood donor locations for Mississippi Regional Valley Blood Center and the American Red Cross. Both blood banks have taken measures to ensure the health and safety of donors, including temperature screenings, distancing donor beds, and extra sanitation. We recognize the importance of maintaining a blood supply, especially during this time of crisis. If you are healthy and able, we hope you will consider doing so. The blood banks are available to answer any questions.
