Love is all around us: Join the Wellesley Community Blood Drive!

Posted by on Feb 15, 2018 in Blogs | 0 comments

We will be hosting a community blood donation drive on February 20th at the Wellesley Community Center. The drive, held in cooperation with the American Red Cross and the Wellesley Community Center, aims to collect more than 50 units of lifesaving blood.

In the United States, it is estimated that someone needs blood every 2 seconds. Despite this high demand, only a fraction of individuals eligible to donate blood actually do each year. Donated blood from universal donors (O-) are in great demand but always in short supply.

By donating blood , you will help thousands of patients in need.

Members of the public are invited to attend. Donors with the following blood types are invited to donate by the Red Cross’ double red cell technology (2RBC):  O- , O+, A- , B-.

 

Date:    Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

Time:    11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Venue:  Wellesley Community Center

219 Washington Street

Wellesley, MA
