ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The American Red Cross released dates for their blood donation opportunities in November. The Red Cross is still dealing with an emergency blood and platelet shortage and the current blood supply is the lowest they’ve seen this time of year in more than a decade.

Donors who give blood from Monday, November 1 to November 12 will automatically enter to win a trip for two to Hawaii, courtesy of Amazon. The trip will transport you to where the series “I Know What You Did Last Summer” was filmed and includes round-trip airfare for two, hotel accommodations for nine nights, meals, a $1,000 gift card for expenses, and on-trip transportation with tour stops from Honolulu to Maui.

Also, donors between November 1 and November 23 will receive a $10 Amazon.com gift card. Donors are urged to schedule an appointment now by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, or calling (800) RED CROSS.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities November 1 to 23
