Blood drive at 22News Wednesday!

One donation can help save up to 3 lives

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The American Red Cross will be holding a blood drive at 22News Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Anyone wishing to donate blood can make an appointment by calling 1-800-733-2767 or by visiting redcrossblood.org and using the sponsor code 7528.
