Oneida Nation Enterprises and American Red Cross Blood Services are sponsoring a blood drive on Wednesday, December 18 at the Chautauqua/Canandaigua/Saranac rooms of Turning Stone Resort Casino from 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. The drive is open to the public.

Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history review, a mini-physical, then donation and refreshments. A healthy donor may donate red blood cells every 56 days, or double red cells every 112 days.

Donor appointments are preferred, but walk-ins will also be accepted. To schedule an appointment to donate, contact Pat Catalano at (315) 829-8215.
