The Yankees are sponsoring a blood drive in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and the first 300 donors will receive vouchers for a pair of tickets to a 2013 New York Yankees home game. Here are the details as passed along by the team.

The New York Yankees are sponsoring a New York Blood Center donor drive to help replenish supplies after Hurricane Sandy Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., at Manhattan’s Gotham Hall, 1356 Broadway at 36th Street.

Donors (first 300) will receive vouchers for a pair of tickets to a 2013 New York Yankees game.

“We thank the New York Yankees and Gotham Hall for helping us replenish our community blood supply after Hurricane Sandy,” said New York Blood Center (NYBC) Vice President Rob Purvis. “We’re opening up new locations and drives all the time – including Friday’s drive at Gotham Hall – and the latest information is at nybloodcenter.org and 1-800-933-BLOOD.”

Blood donors will receive free mini-medical exams on site including information about their temperature, blood pressure and hematocrit level. Eligible donors include those people at least age 16 (with parental permission), who weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, are in good health and meet all Food & Drug Administration and NY State Department of Health donor criteria. People over 75 may donate with a doctor’s note.
