Emanuel United Church of Christ will be hosting a blood drive for the New York Blood Center on Saturday, July 27.

The drive will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the church located at 93-12 91 Ave. in Woodhaven.

According to NYBC, a single donation can help save up to three lives.

In addition, the NYBC has partnered with the 2013 Super Bowl Committee to increase blood donations.

Anyone who donates blood to the organization between now and Jan. 27, will be entered into a sweepstakes to win one pair of tickets to Super Bowl XLVIII at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Feb. 2, 2014.

To schedule an appointment, contact Emanuel United Church of Christ at (718) 849-1153. Walk-ins are welcome.

Anyone looking to donate must bring a photo or signature ID to the church on the day of the blood drive.

Donors 16 years old or young must have written consent from a parent or legal guardian.
