There is a critical need for blood donations throughout the Capital Region and this week you can become a Holiday Hero. CBS 6 is hosting their American Red Cross "Holiday Heroes Blood Drive". It will happen on Wednesday, July 3rd all around the Capital Region. The need is critical and right now hospitals in our area only have limited supplies of blood.

This Wednesday, July 3rd there are four locations in the area that you can donate blood. If you are in Schenectady, you can stop by Proctor's Theatre. The Albany Marriott is also a blood donation location at 189 Wold Road. If you are in the Saratoga area, you can go to The Gideon Putnam Hotel. In Troy, you can donate at the Hilton Garden Inn on Hoosick Street.

The American Red Cross and CBS 6 "Holiday Heroes Blood Drive" runs from noon until 7pm at each of these four area locations.
