Upcoming blood drives at the JCC

December 5, 2023

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh (JCC) has hosted nearly 100 blood drives in partnership with Vitalant over the past five years. Given the unprecedented circumstances related to the war in Israel and in keeping with our mission to focus on human services and community need, the JCC and the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh are teaming up with Vitalant and American Friends of Magen David Adom to host additional blood drives with an amplified focus: To ensure the blood supply locally remains high in case blood needs to be transported to Israel.

These efforts, as part of a tenure Contingency Agreement in place since 2018 between U.S. blood centers and Magen David Adom, will ensure there is ample blood supply and products available should there be a need overseas due to the unfolding situation in and around Israel.

Four blood drives are scheduled for the following dates and locations:

JCC Squirrel Hill, Katz Theater, 5738 Darlington Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15217
  • Tuesday, December 5, 9 am – 2 pm
