May 1, 2013
GREATER SPRINGFIELD – The American Red Cross will host several community blood drives during the month of May. All eligible and new blood donors are encouraged to give blood. Blood donors are needed every day to ensure an adequate blood supply for patients in need.

In May, all presenting donors will receive a coupon for $25 off any auto service purchase of $50 or more from Sullivan Tire and Auto Repair. Plus, enter for a chance to win two Boston Red Sox tickets and be honored at Fenway Park as the Blood Donor of the Game.
