Salmon Run Mall to host American Red Cross blood drive

WATERTOWN, NY – Salmon Run Mall has partnered with the American Red Cross as we host a Blood Drive on Thursday, September 24, 2020 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Salmon Run Mall.   You can register to donate by clicking  here.

The American Red Cross has a constant and ongoing need for blood and platelet donations. There is no known end date in this fight against coronavirus, and the Red Cross needs the help of blood and platelet donors and blood drive hosts to meet the needs of patient care.

Additionally, the Red Cross is testing all blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies. The Red Cross hopes testing will provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to this coronavirus, as some COVID-19 carriers can be asymptomatic. We are committed to helping others in meaningful ways during this pandemic.

Donating blood products is essential to community health and the need for blood products is constant. As part of our nation’s critical infrastructure, healthy individuals can still donate in areas that have issued shelter in place declarations or are operating under a phased reopening plan. The Red Cross follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood for those in need. As hospitals resume surgical procedures and patient treatments that were temporarily paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic, donors are urged to give now.

Salmon Run Mall is committed to the health, safety and knowledge of its guests, tenants and employees.  Please visit www.shopsalmonrunmall.com for the Healthy Shopper Guidelines, latest sales, news, information and venue hours.  Also, like us on Facebook and Instagram.
