Blood Drive 🙋
The New York Blood Center recently announced a blood emergency due to an alarming drop in blood donations.
Just one pint of blood can save the lives of up to three people. Judaism is clear about pikuach nefesh, our obligation to act in order to preserve life; this commandment supersedes all else. Join us as we bring back our blood drive on November 13. Help us save 150 lives!
Donations, on average, take 45 minutes to an hour from arrival to donating to snacks. Donors from age 16 to 76 are eligible to donate (16 year olds need their parent or guardian’s consent) and anyone over 76 will need a doctor’s note. For medical reasons, donors must weigh at least 110 pounds.
For questions or concerns regarding eligibility, please provide contact (800) 688-0900. NYBC’s Eligibility office is staffed by a Health Practitioner Monday thru Friday between 9am to 5pm. Please call prior to going to the blood drive.Category: Social Justice, Adults, Religious School, Teens, Featured Events
