Manchester- Mayor Frank C. Guinta today challenged all Manchester citizens who are able to donate blood to do so at the American Red Cross blood drive that he is sponsoring this Thursday.

"With such a short supply of blood, it is critical that everyone in Manchester come out and give blood if they are physically able to do so," Guinta said. "Morgan and I challenge all citizens who are able, to join us in giving blood this Thursday."

"The people of Manchester have an enormous amount of pride in their city and have always been very generous in times of need, so I am confident they will help make this blood drive a great success," Guinta added.

The blood drive will take place this Thursday, July 27th from 12-6pm at the Radisson Center of New Hampshire Hotel, 700 Elm Street. Donors will be able to enjoy snacks from local restaurants such as: Ben and Jerry’s Ice cream, Gala Café, B&B Café, Pappy’s Pizza, Papa John’s and Cotton Restaurant.

Mayor Guinta and his wife Morgan will be giving blood at approximately noon.
