Annual Blood Drive

Here are a few reasons why you should donate blood this year… 

·      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 NY Blood Center imports 50,000 pints of blood to the Metro NY 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 3 lives! 

Our blood drive chairpersons, Natalie Mines and Carol Blumenthal are eager to sign you up.  You can email nataliemines@yahoo.com or carollblumenthal@gmail.com or call Carol at 516-330-6681 with any questions and to schedule your time.

OR you can sign up and schedule your donation time on your own by going to…
