Massachusetts State Lottery Hosting Blood Drives

Blood Drives to Benefit Boston Children’s Hospital Patients



(February 12, 2024) The Massachusetts State Lottery is hosting blood drives at its Dorchester headquarters and Braintree regional office to support the needs of patients from Boston Children’s Hospital.


Lottery Blood Drive Schedule:

Wednesday, February 21 at 150 Mount Vernon St., Dorchester

Drive Code: MALOTT


Wednesday, February 28 at 1515 Washington St., Braintree

Drive Code: MALOTTBR


Both drives are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appointments are required on the Boston Children’s Bloodmobile. To schedule an appointment, please visit www.bostonchildrens.org/halfpints or call 617-355-6677. If scheduling online, use the drive code listed above. Parking at both locations is free.


A photo ID is required to donate blood. Prior to your appointment, please eat a healthy meal and be well hydrated.


Blood donation appointments take less than an hour and can help as many as four patients who rely on donations from healthy volunteers. Blood donations directly benefit Boston Children’s patients undergoing cancer treatment, cardiac surgery or transplant, and those with genetic blood disorders and who need regular blood transfusions.


The Boston Children's Blood Donor Center is an independent collection facility, serving the needs of pediatric patients in the Longwood Medical Area. Established in 1958, Boston Children’s Blood Donor Center supplies virtually all of the blood and blood products used at Boston Children's Hospital.


To show your support, share photos of the Boston Children’s Bloodmobile on social media using the hashtag #GivePintsforHalfPints.
