Buffalo Sabres Blood Donor Rally for ConnectLife
 
Help our hometown blood team stock the shelves! Due to the increase in COVID cases across WNY and subsequent blood drives canceling we need the community to come out and donate TOMORROW.
 
Donate at a ConnectLife Neighborhood Blood Donation Center on Wednesday, November 11th ONLY and be entered to win an exclusive Buffalo Sabres fan package, including an autographed Sabres jersey, Sabres hoodie, Sabres cap, Rachel’s Mediterranean Grill gift card and a Tim Horton’s gift card. Three winners will be drawn and announced on Friday. All donors tomorrow will also receive an exclusive Buffalo Sabres winter hat.
 
To ensure an adequate blood supply for our local hospitals it is imperative that healthy, eligible individuals donate. Blood has a short shelf life and must be continually replenished. It is the blood already on the shelves that saves lives, and we want to ensure that we have enough should COVID continue to worsen across WNY.
 
To make an appointment to donate visit www.ConnectLifeGiveBlood.org or call 716.529.4270. Wear your favorite Sabres gear and a mask!
 
Neighborhood Blood Donation Center at the Southgate Plaza: 10am-8pm
 
Neighborhood Blood Donation Center at 4444 Bryant & Stratton Way in Williamsville: 10am-6pm
 
Neighborhood Blood Donation Center at 96 Niagara Street in Tonawanda: 10am-8pm
