Come down to the 22News studios and help save a life! The American Red Cross is here until 6pm accepting blood donations. Every donation can help save up to three lives.
22News is located at 1 Broadcast Center in Chicopee, just a short distance from the center of Chicopee. Donors will receive a $5 Dunkin’ Electronic Gift Card and a long sleeve Red Cross shirt.
Today’s Mass Appeal show highlights the benefits of donating blood. We hear from patients who received blood and how thankful they are for those donations. Donors tell us what motivates them to give the gift of life.
If you have a business, school or organization, you can host your wn blood drive. It’s a great way to give back to the community. For more information, go to RedCrossBlood.org/HostADrive
Before you donate, you should have an extra 16 oz of fluid and eat a healthy meal. Bring ID and your blood donor card if you have one. You can complete the RapidPass online to make donating even faster!
