Fall 2012 Blood Drive

10:00 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.

This year's semi-annual Fall 2012 one-day Blood Drive is Wednesday, October 10th, from 10:00 A.M. to 3:45 P.M., in front of 66 Fifth Avenue, on the NY Blood Center's Mobile bus.

This is an opportunity for members of The New School to contribute life-saving blood to grateful New Yorkers and to demonstrate our community spirit and responsibility. There is an ongoing need for blood in our area. Patients include accident victims, surgical patients, cancer patients, burn victims, hemophiliacs and the elderly.

The entire registration and donation process should take about an hour of your time, with the actual blood giving taking about six or seven minutes. Donors must be between the ages of 17 and 75 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, and not have donated blood within the last 56 days. Donors also must bring a form of photo identification

The Spring 2012 drive was a success with 25 donations out of 47 attempts. Let's surpass these numbers with our Fall drive!

Donors should try to make an appointment in advance via theweb scheduler. Walk-ins Are Always Welcome!

Please support and participate in this important endeavor.
