is sponsoring a blood drive on Thursday, November 18, to help boost blood supplies on Long Island. Donations can be made from 7 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. in the Teaching Center, located on the Hospital's third floor. Anyone between the ages of 17 and 76, in good health and weighing at least 110 pounds is eligible to donate.
Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation.
As an incentive to attract donors, the Hospital will provide a voucher for a free lunch in the Hospital cafeteria.
Walk-ins are welcome. It only takes approximately 10 to 12 minutes to donate, but participants should allow one hour to complete the sign-in and donation process. An ID with a signature and a social security number will be requested of each donor.
For those who would prefer to make an appointment, contact Gerry Minerva at 631-726-8336.
