Blood collected by the Adirondack Regional blood Center stays in the North Country, helping hundreds of people in this region at hospitals in Plattsburgh, Elizabethtown, Malone, Massena, Saranac Lake and Glens Falls. The Donor Center depends on donors and sponsors to maintain an adequate supply of blood and blood products for the region. The continued generosity and dedication of both groups is vital to the success of the program.
