Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs and the American Red Cross will be hosting a blood drive at the casino today
The drive will be from from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom.
During the months of June, July and August, on average, about two fewer donors schedule an appointment to give blood at Red Cross blood drives that what patients need. This can add up to 100,000 fewer donations during the summer.
“Patients don’t get a summer holiday or vacation from needing blood and platelets. Every day is a chance to give hope by rolling up your sleeve,” said Colin Riccobon, external communications manager, Northeastern Pennsylvania Blood Services Region.
All presenting donors between July 1 – July 31, will be eligible to win a $100 American Express Gift Card. One card will be given away daily.
