The Baystate Health Blood Donor Mobile will host a blood drive on Monday, April 18, from 11 am – 4 pm, in Baystate Franklin Medical Center’s Emergency Department parking lot, off Sanderson Street. All blood types are needed. Eligible blood donors will receive their choice of a Dunkin Donuts or Big Y gift card.

All blood donated to the Baystate Blood Donor Program stays local to help patients in our hospitals.
