Aviation Mall will be hosting a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Friday, August 26th from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. across from Bath & Body Works.
Donating blood is a safe process and an essential service. Patients, especially those with sickle cell disease, need donors now more than ever. The American Red Cross has faced a concerning drop in blood donations this summer. The decline in donations has caused the Red Cross blood supply to shrink nearly 20% in recent weeks. The availability of blood products will continue to decline if donations do not increase. Type O negative blood donors are especially needed now.
Donors at this blood drive will be automatically entered for a chance to win gas for a year (a $6,000 value). There will be three lucky winners! To make an appointment to donate, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code: AVIATIONMALLNY.
