SARATOGA SPRINGS - People in Saratoga Springs hopped aboard a bus Friday to give blood.

The Red Cross brought its traveling donor center to Fingerpaint, a marketing agency with offices on Broadway.

Several of the firm's staff were among the 40 or so people who got on the bus to donate.

The Red Cross says using mobile blood drives is critical during the summer months when demand is up and donations typically decline.
