• Red Cross hosting 9/11 blood drive at Fenway Park

    Updated:

    BOSTON - The Red Cross is hosting a blood drive at Fenway Park Wednesday in honor of the lives lost on 9/11.

    The American Red Cross's annual Day of Remembrance has been held at Fenway on the Sept. 11 anniversary for the past 17 years. The drive has brought in more than 11,000 blood donations since 2002, according to the Red Cross, and this year, the goal is to collect 500 units of blood.

    "Everyone has a connection in some way to that day. We all remember where we were what we were doing... when you’re laying on that bed you can take a moment and reflect on that sacrifice and what it means today," said Kelly Isenor, a Red Cross spokesperson. 

    The blood drive is from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fenway Park. Appointments can be made online and all blood types are needed.
