For medical questions concerning blood donations call 1-800-688-0900
Did you know that only 2% of New Yorkers donate blood, compared with 5% nationwide? Over 2,200 pints of blood are needed EVERY DAY to meet the needs of patients in over 50 NYC hospitals. You have a gift that could save 5 lives with one donation. Please share that gift and DONATE BLOOD!
New York Blood Center needs our help. They face an unprecedented situation, and now have declared an emergency appeal: because of Hurricane Sandy, they project a total cumulative shortfall of up to 12,000 units of urgently needed blood. If you have not donated, we ask you to do so as soon as you can. The blood you give now will help NYBC to replenish the losses from the storms and prepare the blood supply for the always-intensive holiday season. We need your help to safeguard the health of our communities.
