Blood Drive at City Hall: Friday, Jan. 16th

RI Blood Center 2The City of Providence and the Rhode Island Blood Center are teaming up for a blood drive at City Hall. Please donate on Friday, January 16th from 12 to 3 PM in the Alderman’s Chambers (25 Dorrance Street). It’s Dunkin’ Donors Month at RIBC, so all presenting donors will receive a free $5 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card!

All blood donations will make a difference in someone’s life. A significant amount of the blood collected at these blood drives will go towards treating children with leukemia, automobile accident victims and patients needing organ transplants. During the holidays, donations tend to decline while the need can increase. Your donation will truly make a big difference in someone’s life. Appointments are optional, and walk-ins are welcome. To plan ahead, make an appointment here.
