Mayor Joseph M. Petty Announces 2nd Annual New Year’s Eve Blood Drive
All welcome to attend!
Thursday, December 31
from 9 AM to 2 PM …
… in the Saxe Room at the Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square …
… interested parties are invited to donate blood at the 2nd Annual New Year’s Eve Blood Drive for the Red Cross.
“The holiday season is one of the hardest times for the Red Cross to get blood donations but the need is still great,” said Mayor Petty. “Last year we set a goal for fourteen donors and had over thirty people donate. We’re hoping for at least thirty donors again. We already have thirteen signed up so we’re almost half-way to our goal.”
Blood donors with all types, particularly O negative, A negative, and B negative, are urged to make a donation appointment.
Eligible donors can schedule an appointment to give blood using the Blood Donor App, by visiting redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Walk-ins are welcome.
All presenting donors will receive a Red Cross holiday long-sleeve t-shirt and can enter to win a gift card from Brew City Grill on Shrewsbury Street.
