On Saturday, September 12, 2009, The New York Football Giants are teaming up with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive. The blood drive is scheduled for 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at The Stadium Club within Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Giants Alumni, including George Martin, Howard Cross and Sean Landetta, are scheduled to make appearances throughout the day.

The Giants hope their fans can contribute 800 units of blood to help the Red Cross maintain a sufficient blood supply.

As a special thank you, all presenting blood donors will receive a limited edition Giants Calendar, a picture of their name in lights on the Giants Stadium scoreboard, and a free pound of coffee compliments of Dunkin' Donuts. Six lucky donors will be randomly selected to win an autographed football, and one donor will win a pair of tickets to a NY Giants Home game this coming season!

"It is an honor for us to be working with the American Red Cross. We enthusiastically support the American Red Cross in their fight to save lives," said Michael Stevens, Chief Marketing Officer, New York Football Giants.

"We thank the Giants for helping to save lives in the community, and hope to turn many fans into life-saving blood donors," said Brigid O'Neill-LaGier, Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross Penn-Jersey Blood Services Region. "The upcoming blood drive (September 12th) is vitally important to build a sufficient blood supply throughout the region."

Most healthy people who are at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more are eligible to donate blood every 56 days. Sixteen year olds can donate blood with parental consent.

Everyone interested must make a blood donation appointment by visiting www.pleasegiveblood.org. A limited number of appointments are available, so make yours today!
