Rockport Police Station
168 Main Street
8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
This year’s blood drive is dedicated to those who have served and are still serving in the US military.
Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with written parental permission). Donors over 65 please call 617-726-8171 for special guidelines. Most healthy people over 65 CAN donate.
To make donating as easy and comfortable as possible, MGH will bring a state of the art bloodmobile completely staffed with a RN, phlebotomists, and/or LPNs. The bloodmobile is entirely self-contained with four donor beds, two soundproof medical history booths and snack area.
Blood is a medicine that can only be given from one person to another - no other source is currently available. Blood supplies often run low during the holiday season due to increased need and donors feeling they’re too busy to donate. A half hour can save three or four lives! Challenge your friends and family to give blood. The bloodmobile can accommodate three to four people every fifteen minute. Make your appointment early and donate as a group!
For those who cannot give blood there’s another opportunity to help by donating small stuffed animals, hand-held games and tween/teen puzzle/crossword books to be distributed to the children in MGH and at Shriners Hospital. The stuffed animals must be NEW and 6-10 inches. Donating a gift to a hospitalized child is a wonderful opportunity to teach children about compassion and the spirit of giving.
