MONTICELLO, NEW YORK- With New York hospitals facing a chronic deficit of blood donations due to Covid-19, Resorts World New York is hosting a pair of blood drives in partnership with the New York Blood Center (NYBC) during American Heart Month. On Thursday, February 11th, Resorts World New York City will host its New York Mets Fan Blood Drive with the NYBC. Donors at Resorts World New York City will receive a free Limited Edition NY Mets t-shirt and a voucher for two tickets to a future New York Mets game. Resorts World Catskills will host its blood drive, the first to ever take place at the property, on Wednesday, February 24th, at the RW Epicenter.
