SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – The SMG-managed DCU Center and Worcester Sharks announced today that they will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Friday, September 5, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. inside the Convention Center lobby. To schedule an appointment to donate blood call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visiting redcrossblood.org
The Worcester Sharks and the DCU Center have hosted a blood drive annually at the DCU Center since the team’s inaugural season in 2006. Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. You never know when a friend, family member, or co-worker or even you will need blood. Each unit of donated blood may help save up to three lives. Donated blood is used to help accident victims, trauma patients, transplant recipients, and those receiving treatment for life-threatening illnesses.
“The DCU Center has been a longtime supporter of the American Red Cross,” said Sandy Dunn, General Manager. “We strongly encourage our friends and neighbors to donate blood on September 5th.”
