BOSTON, Mass.—The Greater Boston community has come together once again to selflessly serve those in need.
April 9 marked the third annual Blood Drive of the Armenian American Medical Association (AAMA) of the Greater Boston Area in commemoration of the 102nd Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The event took place in and was co-sponsored by the Armenian Cultural and Education Center (ACEC) in Watertown, Mass.
Twenty-four volunteers were present to take part in gifting Blood for Memory, a worldwide movement to save a life by donating blood in honor and remembrance of the victims of genocide and crimes against humanity. All blood donations were safely and professionally coordinated by the blood mobile unit of the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center, made possible through the support of the Friends of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Friends of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Please visit http://www.aamaboston.org/ for further details and photographs of the event.
