FMH to Host Blood Donor of the Game Blood Drive on July 3
June 22, 2009The American Red Cross is urging eligible blood donors to give blood before the Fourth of July holiday. While everyone enjoys celebrating the holidays, it is a time when blood shortages are likely to occur.
Donors in the Farmington area can help when the Red Cross conducts a “Red Sox Blood Donor of the Game” blood drive at Franklin Memorial Hospital on Friday, July 3, from 1-6 p.m. All presenting blood donors will receive a free Red Sox t-shirt and will be eligible to win two tickets to a Boston Red Sox game and be honored on the field as the blood donor of the game.
Donors may safely give blood through the Red Cross every 8 weeks. Eligible donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more, and be in good health.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact the American Red Cross at 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-482-0743).
