DEWITT, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Every year Laurence Segal, also known as the “Can Man,” wants one thing for his birthday — the chance to help save a life!
He’s known for being the “Can Man.” Segal collects discarded cans and bottles to raise money for cancer charities and to spread awareness about early detection.
In the midst of a blood donation shortage, on Friday, Segal is hosting his annual birthday blood drive.
Segal is partnering with the Red Cross. They’re looking to fill a dire need for those with cancer and donations have been slow with the pandemic and delta variant.
The blood drive is scheduled to take place on Friday, Oct. 15 from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the DeWitt Community Church.
You can donate blood by scheduling an appointment here.
