Tewksbury, MA – Blair House will host a blood drive on Friday, September 9, 2016, at 10 Erlin Terrace, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

As a thank you, donors will receive a pair of portable mini-speakers for electronics.

Blood collected at the drive will benefit patients at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

People undergoing treatment for cancer, heart disease - as well as accident victims, transplant recipients, babies in the newborn ICU, and many other patients – depend on transfusions to control their bleeding. Volunteer donors are the only source of blood products for these patients.

In general, to donate blood, you should be at least 17 years old, 110 pounds or heavier, and in good health.
