I would appreciate it if you would help me get the word out about the Amateur Radio Operators Blood Drive this Saturday on November 20th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The drive will be held at the Worcester EOC located at 50 Skyline Drive, Worcester, MA. This location is directly off of Belmont Street (Rt. 9) in Worcester and the EOC located in the brick National Guard Facility at the South entrance to Green Hill Park.
The Red Cross informed me today that there is a critical shortage of donated blood and it is very worrisome this early in the holiday season. They are hopeful for a large number of donors this Saturday at the Amateur Radio Operators Blood Drive.
Those who donate will be entered into a free raffle to be drawn at the end of the day (you don’t have to be present to win)for some HRO Gift Certificates and Gift Certificates to local Restaraunts. The Red Cross
is also giving out free “T” shirts to donors and will provide refreshments.
There will also be an information table and an event station at the site. Please help us get the word out to your friends and family, fellow hams and non-hams alike. We really need to have a big showing up at the EOC and it will help the critical blood supply shortage in the area.
Those that wish to can preregister for the drive by calling the Red Cross at 1-800-GIVE-LIFE. Walk-in donors are also very welcome.
