Volunteer Your Time

There are a few opportunities to volunteer your time, contact David Chudnow at dchudnow@jfedpgh.org or 412-992-5209.

Donate Blood

Donating blood is a great free way to help out any time of the year.

O-positive, O-negative and platelet donations are needed most, but existing and first-time donors with all blood types are welcomed, according to Vitalant, formerly Central Blood Bank.

People who are as young as 16 (with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in general good health may be eligible to donate blood, according to Vitalant.
