Monday, February 11th from 12 PM – 5 PM at Wings of Eagles Discovery Center
When you’re driving near the airport this Monday, don’t just fly by. Glide into a special American Red Cross blood drive and give a donation that will help lift the spirits of a patient who needs blood to higher heights. The National Soaring Museum and Wings of Eagles Discovery Center are holding a blood drive on Monday, February 11, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Wings of Eagles Discovery Center, 339 Daniel Zenker Drive in Horseheads, NY.
It’s important to remember that blood is always needed and giving blood is a simple act that helps save lives. Approximately every two seconds a patient in the United States needs blood. That’s why your blood donation through the Red Cross is so important. A blood donation may help save up to three lives and it only takes about an hour of your time. It is the blood on the shelves today that helps save lives tomorrow.
A blood donation can help save the life of a real person in your community. Blood is an essential component for patient care in area hospitals, and the only source of blood is a healthy, volunteer blood donor. All presenting donors can enter for a chance to win a $50 movie gift card. One winner will be selected each day for the entire month of February. Walk-ins are always welcome, but donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment in advance by calling 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767) or by visiting redcrossblood.org.
