New York Blood Center
Blood Center Vice President Rob Purvis says supplies tend to dwindle when schools let out and people go on vacation.
It’s that time of the year when people take breaks from school and work and when blood and platelet donation levels become vulnerable.
Did you know that there would need to be over 2,000 volunteer blood donations each day to meet the transfusion needs of patients in Tri-State area hospitals? Here are some of the blood drives happening in our area.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it doesn’t take much to make a difference, all you have to do is “just sit there.”
The West Haverstraw Volunteer Fire House is hosting a blood drive on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The New York Blood Center is issuing an emergency appeal for donors.
