The Massapequa Public Library will be holding a blood drive on September 3rd, from 3 pm to 7:30 pm.
Today we received this press release from the New York Blood Center:
"Blood collections usually dip in the summer months when
schools are closed and people are away on vacation. August is the most difficult month of the
year to collect blood, the effects of which are usually felt all the way into
While all blood types are needed on a regular
basis, O+ and O- are in great demand.
We are currently experiencing a dire need
for O- blood, the blood hospitals use in emergencies."
Please donate blood at Massapequa Library on
9/3 from 3 pm – 7:30pm.
Be a hero, donate blood, and save up to three lives!
Walk ins are welcome!
If the date of our drive is inconvenient for you the blood center offers many other donation options, including blood drives at other sites. Click here for more information.
