Holiday Blood Drive

As you may know, Congregation Beth Israel partners with Vitalant to host at least one blood drive a year. COVID-19 has made the blood supply uncertain the last few months. As we enter cold and flu season and the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Vitalant is expecting donations to continue to decline. We are committed to the mission of saving lives through blood donation, so we are hosting a virtual blood drive. This is your invitation to take part in this innovative event to support hospital patients in our community.

This blood drive is for Congregation Beth Israel, Staff, Parents, Alumni and Friends. Feel free to invite a friend to join you.

Join us in saving lives through blood drives!

Our Virtual Blood Drive runs from December 20 to January 3. (If you want to donate earlier, you can still use the attached link.)

Donate Blood. Receive COVID-19 antibody testing. We’ll let you know if you have the antibodies to help patients battling COVID-19!

Participating in the virtual blood drive is easy. For us to track all of the donations at the virtual blood drive, you need to follow these steps:

  1. To sign up CLICK HERE for the virtual blood drive to get your emailed invitation to schedule your appointment.

  2. When your email arrives, click “Schedule Now” to book your appointment at any of the public Vitalant Blood Drives or at Vitalant Blood Center using the same email address you used to sign up. This is important because it helps Vitalant connect your donation to our organization’s virtual blood drive.

  3. Prepare for your donation by eating a healthy meal and drinking plenty of water. Remember to bring a photo ID with you.

  4. Donors must be 16 or older. If your 16 and 17 years old, please bring a signed Parent Consent Form when you donate. Click here to print out that form.

  5. Give blood, transform lives!

Thanks for supporting patients by donating blood during our virtual blood drive.
