FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CRITICAL SHORTAGE IN BLOOD DRIVES MASSMUTUAL TO HOST AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17TH   

Springfield, MA – August 3, 2016

The MassMutual Center operated by Spectra Venue Management, will be holding their third Red Cross Blood Drive of the year on August 17, 2016 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

There is a significant shortage of blood for hospital patients right now and the American Red Cross has issued an emergency request for people eligible to schedule a blood or platelet donation as soon as possible. Right now, the Red Cross has less than a five-day supply of blood on hand. At least a five-day supply is needed to meet the needs of hospital patients and be prepared for any emergencies that might require lots of donated blood products.

“The MassMutual Center is proud to hold our third Blood Drive of the year in support of the Red Cross. As always we are committed to serving the Springfield community and working with partners such as the Red Cross whose mission is to provide compassionate care to those in need.” said Stacey Church, General Manager of the MassMutual Center. 

The first 50 people to come in and donate blood will receive a pair of tickets to a Springfield Thunderbirds pre-season game and every person that donates throughout the day will have a chance to win a pair of tickets to see the Boston Red Sox.

Visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 800-REDCROSS to schedule your life-saving appointment today. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are preferred.
