That’s a lot of free sweets in one place! In addition to the dessert, donors will also receive a long-sleeve shirt.
Why Donate Blood?
The need for blood affects us all, and the demand for vital blood donors remains constant. Organ transplantation, treatment of cancer, surgery, and many other medical procedures depend on the availability of safe and regular blood supply. Each donor donates 1 pint of blood – an amount that can help save up to 3 lives.
And while human body restores missing blood cells within six weeks, the blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors.
For your free treat, go to MGH at 55 Fruit Street, Boston 02114. Donation starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m. Appointments are encouraged but walk-ins are also welcome. In case of any questions, email email@example.com or call (617)-726-8177.
