On Saturday, December 7th members of the 501st New England Garrison and the Rebel Legion’s Alderaan Base attended the Bob’s Heroes Blood Drive at Gillette Stadium, home of NFL football team the New England Patriots. In conjunction with Bob’s Discount Furniture, the American Red Cross puts together three of these large-scale blood drives every year to try and increase their reach and collect as many blood donations as possible. Former Patriots teammate Joe Andruzzi was among the guests on hand to greet donors at the event.
The need for blood is always there and it only takes about an hour of your time to help. To learn more about how you can help call your local hospital or visit the American Red Cross online at http://www.redcrossblood.org/ .
