FRAMINGHAM – City Council at-large candidate and Framingham Housing Authority member Janet Leombruno accepted School Committee member and District 5 City Council candidate Noval Alexander’s challenge to donate blood this campaign season.
Upon hearing the news of a blood shortage drive at the MetroWest Medical Center, Alexander challenged his fellow candidates, especially those in the September 17 preliminary election, to join him in donating blood.
“Framingham is at its best when we come together to help those in need,” said Alexander. “The Blood Donation Center provides an important, life-saving care to our neighbors in need. “
“Donating blood is near and dear to my heart because I’ve donated while serving on active duty in the wake of the Fort Hood shootings in 2009 and other military operations. One pint saves up to 2 lives,” said Alexander.
Leombruno and Alexander donated a pint of blood at MetroWest Medical Center, and then were offered ice cream by the Framingham hospital.
