Blood and Eyeglasses Donation Drives

Printer-friendly version

Every good Mad Scientist (TM) has some extra blood and glasses in their lab, right? Well, why not help out by donating? Every bit helps out another Mad Scientist in need.

Massachusetts General Hospital and the Children's Hospital of Boston will once again be collecting your blood. Donor appointment times (walk-ins welcome!) will be Saturday 9:30a-4p and Sunday from 10a-4p (that means the last appointment will start at 4pm). Signup for the blood drive will be at a table in the right side of the lobby.


Lion's Club Eyeglasses Donation Drive

There is a collection drive underway for used prescription eyeglasses (and sunglasses) Lions Recycle for Sight and you too can help!

Please donate your used eyewear including men's, women's or children's prescription glasses and non-prescription sunglasses. Lion's Club volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact.

Collection boxes will be located in the Volunteer Lounge (Mezzanine level, Alcott room) and the Info Desk (lobby). This simple act will make a difference in someone's life!
