Thank you to everyone who helped kick off the summer by giving the gift of life.
NBC Connecticut and the American Red Cross held a blood drive on June 19 at the NBC Connecticut Studios in West Hartford and collected 120 pints of blood.
We exceeded our goal and your donations will help save 360 lives.
All donors had the opportunity to take a tour of the NBC Connecticut studios at 1422 New Britain Avenue in West Hartford.
If you could not attend, but want to donate blood, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or click here to register for an appointment.
