Central Berkshire County’s Toyota Dealer, Haddad Toyota, is hosting a BHS Blood Drive at their Pittsfield location at 130 Pittsfield-Lenox Road this week! Berkshire Health Systems is bringing their BHS Bloodmobile to our Route 7 Car Dealership Tuesday December 10th from 9am to 3pm. No appointment is necessary as walk ins are welcome! In addition to the knowledge that they’ve helped their Berkshire County neighbors, donors will receive snacks and their choice of a Beacon Cinemas movie pass or a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.
Why donate at the BHS Bloodmobile? All of the blood collected will stay right here in Berkshire County and will be made available to emergency room patients at BMC and Fairview Hospital. In addition, it’s much less expensive to collect blood in the BHS Bloodmobile than by importing it from outside the county – helping to keep health costs down.
Be sure to drink plenty of liquids (coffee doesn’t count) and to eat before you donate blood. The Blood Mobile staff are friendly, quick and efficient and you should be in and out in no time – many donors donate during their lunch break!
