Blood Drive, Food Drive Nov. 8

Quincy Elks, Lodge 943 and HighPoint Apartments will host a blood drive and Thanksgiving food drive on Saturday, Nov. 8. The drive will be located at HighPoint Apartments, 12 HighPoint Circle (off Quarry Street) Quincy, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Food collected at the drive will benefit the Esther Sanger Center for Quincy Compassion.

Blood collected at the drive will benefit patients at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

People undergoing treatment for cancer, heart disease – as well as accident victims, transplant recipients, babies in the Newborn ICU and many other patients – depend on transfusions to control their bleeding.   Volunteer donors are the only source of blood products for these patients.

To schedule an appointment at the drive, or for eligibility questions, contact the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center at 617-632-3206 or blooddonor@partners.org.  In general, to donate blood, you should be at least 17 years old, 110 pounds or heavier, and in good health.
