“Virtual” Blood Drive
We encourage all eligible donors to make appointments to donate blood at an NYBC donor center (or local blood drives) between Monday, January 25 & Sunday, January 31 and use Group # 60576 to be a part of this special event. COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the process of donating blood and caused the number of blood drives to drop by two-thirds. As a result, “The pandemic is forcing us to rethink the entire landscape, which means encouraging donors to take the extra step of making an appointment and traveling to a donor center. . . ” said Andrea H. Cefarelli, Senior Executive Director of Recruitment & Marketing for New York Blood Center. Donating blood is simple and can literally affect up to three patients in need. To schedule your appointment visit www.nybc.org/donate. For help, or for more information, please contact Yadira Navarro at (516) 478-5026 or via email at [email protected] We look
forward to making a difference together.
