State Representative Cindy Harrison (R-69) is asking the community to join her as she rolls up her sleeve and gives blood during an American Red Cross Blood Drive hosted by the Heritage Hotel in Southbury on Thursday, October 5th.
“Every donation helps to save lives and I encourage you to join me whether this is your very first donation or you are a regular donor,” Rep. Harrison said. “I want to thank Heritage Hotel and Spa for their continued commitment to our community by hosting this important event.”
According to the Red Cross, the entire process takes about one hour. The donation itself is only about 8-10 minutes on average. Restrictions due to weight, health or travel may apply and donors are urged to check their eligibility beforehand by going to https://www.redcross.org/give-blood.html or by contacting a local chapter.
