On Saturday, June 28 Spence Farm will host a blood drive event. This event will take place at Spence Farm located at 41 Wyman Street in Woburn from 9 am until 2 pm.

Double red cell donation is done with the help of a apheresis machine which collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor.

The requirements for double red cell donation are different compared to whole blood donation. If you are a donating female, you must be healthy and feeling well, at least 17 years old, a minimum height of 5’5” and weigh at least 150 pounds.
