Helping the only Level 1 trauma center in Western Massachusetts maintain outstanding care, North Brookfield Savings Bank is sponsoring blood drives at four of its branches during the months of June, July, August and September. The blood drives will supply much-needed blood to Baystate Medical Center (BMC) of Springfield and will be conducted via BMC’s state-of-the-art bloodmobile.
“Bay State Medical Center does incredible work serving people throughout Central and Western Massachusetts, and we’re excited to play a role in helping them do that,” said Donna Boulanger, President and CEO of North Brookfield Savings Bank. “Every time someone donates blood it has the potential to save several lives.”
As an added incentive, donors at the July and August blood drives in West Brookfield and North Brookfield will be given tickets to the Big E; gifts planned for the September blood drives are still being discussed. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided at each blood drive.
To participate, donors must be at least 17 years old (or 16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general good health.
Blood Drives will take place at the following North Brookfield Savings Bank locations on the following dates, between the hours of 12 noon and 5 p.m.
West Brookfield Fri., July 19 and Fri., September 20
North Brookfield Fri., July 26 and Fri., September 27
To schedule an appointment to donate, contact the appropriate North Brookfield Savings Bank branch location or call Cheryl McGrath of Baystate Health at 413-794-4600. Appointments are optional; donors may simply stop by on the day of the Blood Drive.
“The need for blood is high right now and North Brookfield Savings Bank does an incredible job of bringing the community together to make a difference,” said Sue Stockley, BMC Recruiter. “We look forward to continuing to partner with them, and to meeting donors at all the blood drives.”
