YMCA SOUTHCOAST is hosting a blood drive at the Fall River YMCA location.

This blood drive event is a partnership with the American Red Cross and will be held at the YMCA in Fall River on Sunday, June 7 from 10 am to 3 pm. The Y posted about the event on its Facebook page, requesting that members of the community save a life by donating blood during this crucial time. “Blood donors are lifesavers.”

According to the American Red Cross, appointments are now required to make a donation in order to support social distancing. “The need for blood is constant - patients need your help.” You can click HERE to see available time slots and book your appointment.
