Blood Donations

There is a severe blood shortage in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Red Cross has implemented additional precautions to ensure the safety of donors and staff. If you are healthy and feeling well, please make an appointment now to donate in the days and weeks ahead by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Arlington EATS Market

The market is not currently accepting donations of food. You can help your neighbors in this time of crisis by donating to the COVID-19 fund. Our emergency response to this pandemic means logistical organizing and spending extra on purchase of prepackaged emergency food kits and snacks so we can keep all our neighbors fed at this critical time.

Sewing Masks

The store Gather Here created a video tutorial and a written tutorial for sewing fabric masks.

You can drop off completed masks in their drop box, which is available from 12-6 PM at 1343 Cambridge Street in Cambridge. Please place your completed mask in a ziplock (or equivalent) bag. Thank you for your assistance!
