Long Island, NY – I'm writing on behalf of the New York Blood Center, who has reached out to our Union again for emergency support. Thankfully we're inching closer to spring after this brutal winter, though the winter has been especially difficult for blood centers across the northeast.
That's why the NY Blood Center has asked us to host an Emergency Blood Drive on March 24th from 2-8 pm at our Union Hall.
I'm so thankful to all of you for your help and support. Together we have helped over 1,000 New Yorkers as a result of our past four blood drives.
Please reserve your time-slot. Time-slots are scheduled every 15 minutes from 2-8 pm. Call 800-522-0456 ext. 1305 for an appointment.
In addition to lunch and refreshments for all donors, we're also raffling off 10 pairs of New York Mets tickets. Each donor will be entered into the raffle for free! Please RSVP now and share the event to your friends on Facebook so we can help our community once again.
The drive will run from 2-8pm at our union HQ: 425 Merrick Ave. Westbury, NY 11590
