GREATER SPRINGFIELD – The American Red Cross will have several community blood drives during the month of June.

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 June, all presenting donors are eligible to win a $200 gift card, courtesy of Suburban Propane. Come out to donate blood and participants will also have the chance to win two Boston Red Sox tickets and to be honored at Fenway Park as the Blood Donor of the Game.
