The New York Mets and the New York Blood Center are teaming up today for the 2021 Mets Fan Blood Drive.
Mets fans and all interested blood donors can donate at one of five locations in Queens, including The Shops at Atlas Park between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Donors will receive a voucher for a pair of tickets to see the Mets, a free limited edition fan t-shirt and an entry into a sweepstakes for signed memorabilia.
Usually held at Citi Field, the semi-annual blood drive is being at five locations to better control the size of the crowds and facilitate social distancing.
“The vaccine has shown us a light at the end of the tunnel, but we need New Yorkers to come together to help build and sustain the blood supply,” said Andrea Cefarelli, senior executive director of recruitment and marketing for New York Blood Center. “We’re grateful to the Mets for their support and I encourage all eligible New Yorkers—Yankees fans included!—to come out and give.”
