The Islanders and the American Red Cross will be hosting a blood drive at the Coliseum tomorrow, September 24, from 12 pm through 7 pm. Due to Hurricane Irene the Red Cross had to cancel 145 of its’ blood drives and because of that the Red Cross is now short 4,700 units of blood. So a small amount of your time can go along way to help.
As an added bonus, the first 200 blood donors will receive a ticket voucher for two tickets to a weeknight game for the upcoming season. Plus anyone who donates and is attending the Devis/Isles game will be entered into a raffle for the chance to high five the team as they take the ice.
It is encouraged that donors make an appointment ahead of time by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or by going to redcrossblood.org.
Also note that to donate blood you must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general good health.
So make sure you take an hour out of your day tomorrow and help out your community by donating blood.
