NEXT BLOOD DRIVE: August 10, 2012 at the DCU Center - more information to follow
Last August, over 200 Sharks fans gave blood at the DCU Center. The Worcester Sharks have hosted a Blood Drive annually at the DCU Center since the team’s inaugural season in 2006. The Sharks provide game tickets as incentive for donors, and the American Red Cross makes the arrangements to supply all staffing and equipment needs for this special community event.
Adam Edelstein, Blood Donor Recruiter for The American Red Cross stated, “The Worcester Sharks and The DCU Center team up each year up to support the American Red Cross with a Super Summer Blood Drive. They really step up and help us during our most difficult time of the year for blood collection. The need for blood at area hospitals remains constant.”
Michael Mudd, Worcester Sharks President, stated, “The Sharks have a terrific partnership with the American Red Cross and we are excited to take part with this Blood Drive each season.” Mudd continued, “We look forward to see each donor at a Worcester Sharks hockey game next season at the DCU Center as we defend our Atlantic Division regular season championship crown.”
