Blood Mobile Coming to Ware on Nov. 23

WARE — Celebrate the season of Thanksgiving by donating blood before the holiday weekend. The community is invited to join a blood drive on Wednesday, Nov. 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital on the Baystate Health Bloodmobile. The bloodmobile will be parked in the north (visitors) parking lot, located at 85 South St. in Ware.

“Please help us to ensure a safe and adequate blood supply is available by donating blood with the Baystate Health Blood Donor Program,” said Deb Oberg, co-coordinator of the drive, which is sponsored by Country Bank and Baystate Mary Lane Hospital. “One donation helps to save two lives, and 100{06cf2b9696b159f874511d23dbc893eb1ac83014175ed30550cfff22781411e5} of all blood collected on the bloodmobile stays in our community for use in Baystate Health hospitals and facilities.”

All eligible donors will receive a Dunkin Donuts or Big Y Gift card. Blood donations take approximately one hour to complete, including the interview, donation, and refreshments.
