Red Cross Blood Drive at Johnson Compounding, in Waltham


Johnson Compounding and Wellness Center, in Waltham, is hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive from 1 to 6 p.m. on August 20. The blood drive is an annual event at Johnson Compounding and Wellness.

“Summer is a critical season for Red Cross blood banks, so we make sure to host this every year,” says Stephen Bernardi, co-owner. “With people on vacation, the donations drop and the supply gets critically low. We all need to work together to make sure the supply is adequate for any emergency.”  

Johnson Compounding and Wellness Center, a family-owned business, is recognized by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board. The compounding pharmacy specializes in customizing medications to meet patients’ individual needs and the Wellness Center has one of the area’s most extensive selections of high-quality nutritional supplements and homeopathic remedies. Gary Kracoff, a doctor of naturopathic medicine and registered pharmacist at Johnson Compounding, offers fee-based individual consultations and integrates holistic and Western medicine in order to provide the best care for clients. Free lectures are offered monthly at the center.

Blood donation appointments can be scheduled by calling 800-733-2767 (RED-CROS).
