The Magnolia Library and Community Center will host an Emergency Blood Drive for the American Red Cross of Massachusetts this Friday, 1 Lexington Avenue #Gloucester from 9 AM to 2 PM.
The American Red Cross is in desperate need of blood. They face a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during this Coronavirus outbreak.
Blood drives were predominately held at college campuses and at high schools.
The Magnolia Library and Community Center has hosted American Red Cross blood drives for a few years now.
This has been spearheaded by city Council at Jamie O’Hara who himself has donated over 400 times.
To book a spot to donate you can visit the Magnolia Library and Community Center on Facebook or the American red cross at www.redcrossblood.org/give/find-drive, type in 01930 and choose Magnolia Library from the list.
Red Cross precautions pertaining to COVID-19 will be in place. Those precautions can be found on the redcrossblood.orgwebsite.
One of the most important things you can do to ensure we don’t have another health care crisis on top of Coronavirus is to give now.
