The+Paramount+%26+Red+Cross+to+team+up+for+Peekskill+Blood+Drive

The Paramount Hudson Valley and the Red Cross are teaming up together and holding a Blood Drive on April 2, 2024 from 11:30am – 4:30pm at the Paramount to help fill the Blood Bank of Westchester County. To Schedule an appointment  please visit RedCrossBlood.org. Type in 10566, click Find a Drive, click Paramount Hudson Valley and schedule your time. It’s as simple as that.

As an extra perk, each person who donates blood at the Paramount Hudson Valley, will receive an exclusive GODZILLA x KONG: THE NEW EMPIRE and Red Cross shirt while supplies last.

Why donate blood? Simply put, Blood transfusions help save lives—and a constant supply of fresh blood is always needed. There is no substitute for blood, it must come from a willing donor. According to the American Red Cross, “every few seconds, somewhere in the US, someone requires a pint of blood—40,000 pints are used each day.” Donors provide the only supply of life-saving blood for those in need. Donating is simple, fast, and convenient. The donation process can take as little as 45 minutes of your time, but can make a lifelong difference for someone else. Give the gift of life by making an appointment to donate blood today. Visit the Red Cross eligibility Requirements page for more eligibility information.

 

Whether this is your first time or your 20th time donating blood, it is always a great reminder to view the Red Cross information page “What to Do Before, During and After Your Donation” which can help ease the fears and/or help guide you to prepare for your blood donation.
