Empire City Casino to Host Annual Community Blood Drive in Support of World Blood Donor Day Friday, June 14

Becoming a Blood Donor Means Becoming a Life Saver

(Yonkers, NY) – In recognition of World Blood Donor Day on Friday, June 14, Empire City Casino by MGM Resorts will host their annual community blood drive in partnership with the New York Blood Center (NYBC). From 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., members of the community and casino guests are encouraged to stop by the Casino’s Good Time Room located on the third floor to donate blood and help replenish the region’s critically low blood levels. Nationally, over 4.5 million Americans require a blood transfusion annually, with individuals needing blood every two seconds. As a token of appreciation, guests who take time out of their busy schedules to register and donate blood will each receive a $10 gift card to Dunkin’ Donuts.

World Blood Donor Day provides an opportunity to raise awareness on the importance and need of regular blood donations. The American Red Cross currently has a critical shortage of type O blood, with less than a two-day supply available for emergency rooms. In addition, of the 37 percent of the total U.S. population eligible to donate blood, less than 10 percent actually donate.
