Armstrong Ambulance is asking members of the community to participate in its upcoming Valentine’s Day blood drive.
Thursday, Feb. 14, from 2-7 p.m.
Armstrong Ambulance Service, 87 Mystic St., Arlington
Armstrong Ambulance will open its doors to members of the community who would like to make a life-saving blood donation.
According to the American Red Cross, which has partnered with Armstrong for this drive, donated blood means the difference between life and death for patients in emergency situations, as well as those undergoing surgeries and cancer treatments.
Donors must sign up in advance and may do so by clicking here. Donors should plan to spend up to an hour donating, but they can save time on the day of the drive by using the Red Cross Rapid Pass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questions.
“Armstrong saves lives every day, and this is an opportunity for both our team and the communities we serve to come together to help even more people in need,” Armstrong CEO Rich Raymond said. “I want to invite everyone to take part in this blood drive and give the gift of life this Valentine’s Day.”
Anyone with questions about the blood drive is encouraged to reach out to Katherine Aker at 781-859-1314, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
