Upcoming Boulder JCC Blood Drive and Community Service Projects

The Boulder JCC is proud to partner with local organizations in hosting community service events in the upcoming weeks. 

Blood Drive on August 31
Blood donation is a critical and necessary health care activity. It is vital we keep our blood supply strong. Blood has a short shelf life and must be continually replenished. 

Donate at the JCC/Vitalant blood drive on Monday, August 31 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Boulder JCC. The drive will be held in Levin Hall following Health and Safety protocols, including physical distancing guidelines. 

Masks/face coverings are required. Please do not donate blood if you are not feeling well.

To schedule your donation, call 303-363-2300 or visit donors.vitalant.org and use Blood Drive Code 10219 to schedule. This blood drive is open to the public but appointments are required.

Vitalant is now testing blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. For donor eligibility questions, please call 877-258-4825.

Mask and Materials Project

The Boulder JCC has partnered with Boulder County and Friends for Life Couriers to establish another hub for collecting donations of sewing supplies and finished masks for distribution to our most vulnerable neighbors identified through agency partners. 

If you are interested in making masks or have supplies to donate, please see details here.

Mask & Mask Material Donation drop off is Monday – Friday from 9:30 am – 5 pm at the JCC. Please place masks and materials in marked bins.
