The Bunker Hill Associates and Mass General Hospital will collaborate on another blood drive this coming April 3 utilizing an MGH Mobile van outside the Knights of Columbus Hall.
The blood drive will be the second of its type sponsored by both groups within the last year, with MGH having put out the call last year that they were running short on blood donations due to COVID-19 cancelling most of their usual blood donation clinics. The effort last summer was organized by the Associates and member John Driscoll, who is also the associate director of Police and Security at MGH.
“We’re excited to do this a second time,” said Kim Mahoney, past president of the Associates. “The first time was so successful and it was started by our member John Driscoll, who is also an employee of MGH. We’ll provide snacks and giveaways for all who sign up. It will be the second time in one year to do this and it’s exciting to host an in-person event, but we will adhere to all the safety protocols.”
The drive will be operated by MGH in its mobile van from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 3. Sign-ups for an appointment are online, and any questions can be directed to [email protected].
