Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School will be hosting a blood drive from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, April 11, at the school, 1 Commercial Place.

The event has been organized by members of BART’s current junior class as a way to give back to their community.

Donors should plan to eat a good meal and drink plenty of water prior to their donation. For more information or to schedule an appointment, visit or call 1-800-RED-CROSS (733-2767). Walk-ins are also welcomed.
