Sox Offer Fenway September 11th Blood Donation Event

On September 11th, the American Red Cross, Boston Red Sox and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center are partnering to provide a blood donation opportunity at Fenway Park to honor the memories of those who lost their lives in the 2001 terrorist attacks. The local groups will be joining with the national 9/11 Day—the largest annual day of charitable engagement in the United States. The goal of 9/11 Day is to keep alive the spirit of unity and compassion that arose in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, providing a positive, helpful way for people to annually remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, and honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks. You can donate blood on 9/11 at Fenway Park to help local hospital patients in need. The particulars are: Fenway Park Gate D, Yawkey Way, Boston: Friday, Sept.11—7 a.m.–7 p.m. All attendees can take pictures with the World Series trophies, visit with Wally the Green Monster mascot and enjoy a cup of Legal Sea Foods chowder. All presenting donors will receive a commemorative t-shirt, souvenir, a discounted Fenway Park tour and a chance to win Red Sox tickets! You can find out more information on how you can donate HERE or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS. Kudos to the Red Sox owners, the Red Cross and Beth Israel for providing this opportunity to do good on 9/11.
