Dozens donate blood to Red Cross during annual drive at 22News


22News held a blood drive in honor of National Volunteer Blood Donor Month on Thursday. 

The Red Cross launched its ‘Dunkin’ Donors Make a Difference’ campaign at our 22News studios on Broadcast Center.

As part of the campaign, anyone who donated blood on Thursday received a $5 Dunkin’ gift card via email and a free Red Cross t-shirt. 

More than 100 people came out to the blood drive, 99 were able to donate.  

“We just think it’s the sensible thing to do,” said Marci Ryder, a donor from Ludlow. “It’s the right thing to do and it’s also good for you.” 

22News has been hosting this annual blood drive since 2010.

Blood donations urgently needed, visit to make an appointment.
