The Saratoga Springs City Center is sponsoring a blood drive on August 5 from 11:30am-6pm. Please click the visit website link and use sponsor code: saratogacitycenter to make an appointment.
The following has been requested by the American Red Cross for all blood donors:
• Basic Face Masks at Blood Drives: In accordance with updated CDC guidelines, donors will be asked to wear face masks at blood drives or donation centers. We encourage donors to wear their own face mask/covering that covers both their nose and mouth in accordance with CDC guidelines. If a donor does not have a mask, the Red Cross will provide one. If a donor does not want to wear a mask, we ask they postpone their donation for a later date. We ask for your support in helping to communicate this information to your donors for your upcoming blood drive.
• Scheduled Appointments: To help manage donor flow and social distancing at blood drives, appointments are highly encouraged. Please note, at most drives, walk-ins will not be accepted.
• No Guests at Blood Drives: Inform your donors that guests will not be able to attend your blood drive (e.g. babies, children or teens, unless teen is donating blood).
The Red Cross has implemented policies and procedures due to the COVID-19 virus and therefore, it is completely safe to donate. Blood drives have been cancelled across the country and the need has not lessened. Thank you for all your support! #saratogastrong
