Give Blood, Save a Life
Adapted from a Baystate Franklin Medical Center (BFMC) press release:
The Baystate Health Blood Donor Mobile will host a blood drive on Tuesday, September 23rd, from 11AM to 4PM. “The fall is an important time to get out and give blood, as we are completing the summer months – a crucial time for blood donation,” said Saundra Rose, blood donor recruiter for Baystate Health. “The top reason people do not give blood is because they have never been asked, so we are asking you now to donate the gift of life this fall. All of our blood donations are used within our local communities. Donors can make a difference in the lives of their own families, friends and neighbors.”
