NewsChannel 13 and the American Red Cross teamed up for a Save a Life Blood Drive on Thursday, April 14.

The following locations are open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

  • Via Port Rotterdam, 93 W Campbell Road, Rotterdam

The drive was started 9 years ago to honor Katie Urban, who needed more than 100 units of blood save her life post-childbirth. Her family now gives back to others in her position by donating.

The Bethlehem YMCA is one of the locations that opens its doors to the event each year.

You can also donate any other time by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS, visit, or download the Red Cross app and use the sponsor code WNYT.
