Red Cross announces Feb. 8 blood drives in Greenwich, Stamford

It’s nearing Valentine’s Day and the Red Cross wants you to give a gift from the heart, or at least the vein.

They’ll be hosting a pair of blood drives in lower Fairfield County early next month, open to anyone 17 years of age and weighing over 110 pounds in good health.

On Feb. 8, from 8:30 1:15 p.m., the Red Cross will be collecting at the First Congregational Church, at 108 Sound Beach Avenue, Old Greenwich. They’ll also be at work the same day in Stamford from 8:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the Tully Health Center on 32 Strawberry Hill Court.
