Northampton firefighters sponsor blood drive

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – People in Hampshire County literally rolled up their sleeves Saturday to help make a Northampton Firefighters’ blood drive a success.

The Northampton Firefighters Local 108 Union sponsored Saturday’s blood drive at the Civic Center in the Florence section of the city.

Volunteers cooked a pancake breakfast for each blood donor.

Firefighter Matt Marchand told 22News, “Along with the blood drive we’re collecting donations for Relay for Life. We’ve done that for many years; collected donations. We’ve participated in that.”

Western Massachusetts Relay for Life events raise money every year for the American Cancer Society, and aid in their research to hopefully find a cure.
