The Pittsburgh Penguins and American Red Cross will team up for the second consecutive year to host a blood drive on Sunday, October 23 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm at CONSOL Energy Center.
The Score One for Life Blood Drive has been a Penguins’ commitment to the community since 1992. Penguins’ drives have yielded over 13,000 registered donors, whose blood donations have helped up to 41,000 patients in need.
All presenting donors will receive a jersey-style t-shirt, while supplies last, and are eligible to win Penguins memorabilia. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet Penguins’ broadcasters and alumni members during the drive.
All donors must schedule an appointment in advance by telephone at 1-800-RED-CROSS
(1-800-733-2767) or online at redcrossblood.org/penguins
Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in Pennsylvania), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. Donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements. Individuals should bring their Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when coming to donate.
Complimentary parking is available in the South Lot or East Lot. Donors will enter CONSOL Energy Center at the Verizon Gate on Centre Avenue.
