MGH honors blood donors

04/Apr/2014

All presenting blood and platelet donors at the MGH Blood Donor Center during the month of April will receive a royal blue MGH Blood Donor Center “Boston Strong” T-shirt.

The shirt was created to honor the 3,946 blood donors who travelled from the Boston area and from across the United States to donate at the MGH Blood Donor Center in a single month following the tragedy at last year’s marathon. Nearly 2,000 of those donors – who ensured a safe blood supply for the victims of the attacks – were first-time blood donors who have since committed to bi-monthly donations to keep MGH patients safe year-round.

For more information about blood donation or to make an appointment, contact mcallaway@partners.org or call 617-726-8177.
