FARMINGTON – The American Red Cross is urging eligible blood donors to give blood before the Fourth of July holiday when blood shortages are likely to occur.
The Red Cross will hold a Red Sox “Blood Donor of the Game” blood drive at Franklin Memorial Hospital from 1 to 6 p.m. Friday, July 3. All 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 eight 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 or 1-800-482-0743.
