WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Westchesters American Red Cross is holding an emergency blood drive Friday to help replenish a low supply.
Allison Calver, a spokeswoman for the organization, said it has a "critically low blood supply" in an email.
Donors can stop by the Red Cross Friday at 106 North Broadway in White Plains from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Participants will be entered in a contest to win a pair of tickets to the Mets and Cardinals game at CitiField on July 19.
All blood types are needed, however those with type O negative are encouraged to donate because their blood can be given to patients with any blood type.
Before donating the Red Cross suggests getting a good night's sleep, drinking an extra two glasses of water, enjoying a healthy meal and eating iron-rich foods like spinach, red meat, fish, and beans.
Donors must bring identification.
