Beacon Community Blood Drive and Festival May 17

Save lives and enjoy food, music, yoga, games and more

Beacon Hebrew Alliance will hold its third annual blood drive, Units of Love: Beacon Community Blood Drive and Festival, co-hosted with the City of Beacon Fire Department, and this time it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before.

The drive will take place Sunday, May 17, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Lewis Tompkins Hose Fire House, 13 South Ave. (at the corner of Main Street and Route 9D) in Beacon.

Every 2 seconds, someone is in need of a lifesaving blood donation. If just 1 percent more people donated, there would never be a blood shortage again. Learn more at the Facebook page for Units of Love.
