SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The American Red Cross of Western Massachusetts is hoping people will take some time out of their day on the Labor Day holiday to give the gift of life.
All blood types are needed, so if you’d like to donate you will be able to Monday at the Red Cross headquarters on Brookdale Drive in Springfield.
Their headquarters will be open from 7:30am to 2:30pm. The most needed blood types are O-negative, B-negative and A-negative.
Donors said it takes between a half hour and an hour, from start to finish, to donate blood and about two hours to donate platelets.
