Aviation Mall will be hosting a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Friday, July 21 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. across from Regal Cinema.
The American Red Cross continues to see a concerning trend – blood donations are being sent to hospitals faster than they are coming in. The Red Cross has collected about 50,000 fewer blood donations than needed. Donors are needed now more than ever to give blood or platelets to avoid a looming blood shortage.
Presenting donors at this blood drive will receive a “shark week” t-shirt, while supplies last. In addition, they will be automatically entered for a chance to win a three-night New York getaway for two with a private shark dive adventure at Long Island Aquarium.
For more information or to make an appointment to donate, please call 1-800-REDCROSS or sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code AVIATIONMALLNY.
