Annual Blood Drive
Here are a few reasons why you should donate blood this year…
· The New York Blood Center has announced an emergency shortage, and everyone’s help is needed to rebuild the blood supply.
· Each blood donation can help save up to three lives because each donation is broken down into parts and given to three different people!
· Every year, the New York Blood Center imports 50,000 pints of blood to the Metro New York region, because our region does not donate enough blood to keep our hospitals going.
· Donating blood is safe and sterile. You cannot contract anything by donating -- except a warm feeling that you helped save three lives!
Our blood drive chairperson, Natalie Mines, is eager to sign you up!
