Islanders Teaming Up With The American Red Cross

The American Red Cross and the Islanders are teaming up for another major blood drive to help save lives. This month’s blood drive will take place Saturday, Oct. 20 at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.  In addition to the Blood Drive, the Islanders will launch their new merchandise at the Team Store starting at 10 a.m.  

Exclusively for Season Ticket Holders, on top of the $10 off voucher you will receive for donating blood, you’ll receive 20% OFF everything in the store.

There will be special appearances from Sparky and the Ice Girls.  Fans will also have the chance to take part in a John Tavares game-used jersey raffle and pick through game-used equipment from your favorite players.  With any purchase made, you will also receive a special FREE “Orange & Blue + You” t-shirt.  Food and beverage will be available.  

As a special thank you for helping their neighbors, all presenting donors will receive a voucher for two (2) tickets to a future 2012-13 Islanders home game, in addition to the $10 coupon for donating blood, to the Islanders Team Store to be used that day.

Donating blood is a profound act that helps save lives. Approximately every two seconds, a patient in the United States needs blood. That’s why your blood donation through the Red Cross is so important. A blood donation may help save up to three lives and it only takes about an hour of time. It is the blood on the shelves today that helps save lives tomorrow.

The Red Cross blood drive will take place in the Lower Box Office of the Coliseum. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment in advance by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or by visiting redcrossblood.org and using sponsor code 15930. All presenting donors will also have the opportunity to win an overnight package that includes four (4) Islanders game tickets and overnight accommodations. Additionally, each presenting donor will receive a voucher for a free entree from Moe’s Southwest Grill, a Monro Muffler coupon good for two great offers and much more!

In June, the Islanders and American Red Cross announced a three-year partnership to help save lives. The Islanders committed to hosting four Red Cross blood drives each year over the next three years, potentially saving more than 4,000 lives of hospital patients in need. That partnership kicked off at this year’s Draft Party at the Coliseum where over 275 pints of blood were collected, setting a new team record.

About the American Red Cross:

The Red Cross Blood Services - Northeast Division must distribute approximately 3,000 units of blood each day just to meet the basic needs of area patients.
