Blood Drive – July 24

NY Blood Center Logo

June 16, 2021

Due to a gap in blood donations, the New York Blood Center has announced a blood emergency. Blood donors are desperately needed at this time. The pandemic has led to fewer blood drives and a year of virtually no first-time donors among youth. In addition, there has been a surge in blood usage as hospitals perform surgeries and patients seek medical care that had been postponed during the pandemic.

You can help save lives by donating blood at our location in Sunnyside, Queens. New York Blood Center is holding the drive on Saturday, July 24 from 9 am – 3 pm. Make an appointment by calling 1-800-933-2566 or scheduling an appointment online at https://donate.nybc.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/282344. All presenting donors will receive a free box of Girl Scout cookies.
