Manchester, CT – Velvet Mill Apartments will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on July 9, 2019 from 1pm to 6pm at 185 Pine Street, Manchester, CT.

Velvet Mill Apartments is committed to strengthening our community and helping meet hospital and patient needs through blood donations,” said Dana St Pierre, Senior Property Manager. “This blood drive is our way of giving staff, colleagues and neighbors an opportunity to help save lives.”
Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross.
“We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.”
According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
Velvet Mill residential community, located in the Cheney Historical District in Manchester, features Studio, One & Two bedroom apartments. Spacious layouts and amenities welcome you home, along with exceptional service and an ideal location within walking distance to shopping, dining and entertainment options.
