Circulate the love and give blood to the Wellesley Community Blood Drive sponsored by Wellesley Dental Group at the Wellesley Community Center on Thursday, August 31 at 11:00am! The drive, held in cooperation with the American Red Cross, aims to collect at least 50 units of lifesaving blood.

Members of the public are invited to attend. Eligibility requirements can be found here. Donors with the following blood types are invited to donate by the Red Cross’ double red cell technology (2RBC): O-, O+, A-, B-.
