SHREWSBURY, Mass. — An American Red Cross blood drive will be held in Shrewsbury on Nov. 29 at Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant at 7 Boston Turnpike from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
This drive is open to the public and residents from all surrounding towns are invited to participate.
Donors will receive a free Buca di Beppo gift card, and a light buffet will be served to all donors.
Appointments are preferred, but walk-in donors are also welcome. Call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit redcrossblood.org to schedule an appointment to donate.
The Red Cross is hoping to collect at least 55 pints of blood. All blood types are needed, however, blood type O is the universal donor and always in great need.
If you are in good health, weigh 110 pounds or more, and have not given blood in the past 56 days you may try to donate. The Red Cross now requires a positive ID before donating. You must be at least 17 to donate, or 16 with a signed parental consent form.
