Dunkin’ Donuts Celebrates Six Years of Helping Save Lives
All Presenting Blood Donors Will Receive Coupon for a free pound of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee*
The Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant located at 1 Patriot Place in Foxborough is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive to help raise awareness about the need for blood.
During the month of January, all presenting blood donors in Massachusetts will receive a coupon from Dunkin’ Donuts for a free pound of coffee*. Blood is an essential component for patient care in area hospitals, and the only source of blood is a healthy, volunteer blood donor.
About every two seconds someone in America needs blood, and one donation can help save up to three lives. All current and new donors are encouraged to call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to schedule an appointment.
The blood drive will be held Thursday, Jan. 31 from 1 to 6 p.m.
