    Cape Cod Healthcare Announces November Blood Drives
     
    (Hyannis, MA – November 3, 2020) Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital are in urgent need of blood donations, and numerous blood drives are being held across Cape Cod in November to benefit Cape Cod Healthcare (CCHC). The hospitals must have at least one week’s worth of blood on hand at all times. Since each unit collected or purchased only lasts 42 days, it is a constant challenge to maintain sufficient supply.
     
    Blood collected at CCHC Blood Drives stays on Cape Cod to help our families, friends and neighbors. Donors to CCHC blood drives in November will get a Target gift card. 
     
    Appointments are required at all blood drives. To make an appointment at an upcoming blood drive, please visit www.capecodhealth.org/give-blood
