IT’S ABOUT SAVING A LIFE, AND IT COULD BE YOUR

IT’S ABOUT SAVING A LIFE, AND IT COULD BE YOURS

Giving blood is one of those things that you don’t usually think a lot about, unless you or a family member need it.  But there are some very dedicated citizens who do it regularly, and some day you may be thanking God that they did.

This Thursday, by 5 pm, about 20 blood donations were given at the Marasco Community Center in New Windsor.  The City of Newburgh is also asking for people to sign up for a Fall Blood Drive to deal with what is becoming a blood shortage crisis. So there is still plenty of time to contribute, and you might just save a life.  The City of Newburgh is looking for at least 50 people to sign up.

Current processing techniques allow a single blood donation, when separated into components, to help save at least three lives. You can help!

To make your pledge now for the City of Newburgh Blood Drive, please contact Michelle Mills at mmills@cityofnewburgh-ny.gov. You will be contacted with the time, date, and location once enough pledges have been secured.

For confidential medical eligibility questions, please call (800)-688-0900.
