Blood Supply Dangerously Low: Donors Needed for Jan. 17 Blood Drive at Saratoga Casino Hotel

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Casino Hotel is teaming up with the American Red Cross to host a Blood Drive on Monday, Jan. 17. Members of the local community are urged to join dozens of Saratoga Casino Hotel team members to give blood from noon to 6 p.m. inside the hotel ballroom. 

The need for blood remains crucial for patients relying on lifesaving transfusions. The American Red Cross continues to experience a severe blood shortage and donors of all blood types – especially type O – are urged to make an appointment to give now. 

Schedule an appointment to give blood by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting www.RedCrossBlood.org and enter sponsor code SARATOACASINO, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa
Echo device. 

Right now, the Red Cross needs to collect more than 1,000 additional blood donations each day to meet current demand as hospitals respond to an unusually high number of traumas and emergency room visits, organ transplants and elective surgeries. 

To thank donors who help refuel the blood supply, anyone who donates January 1-31 will be entered to win a trip for 2 to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles. 

Saratoga Casino Hotel is located on Crescent Avenue in Saratoga Springs.
