Nassau Community College, along with Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC), will be hosting its Mid-Winter Blood Drive on January 18 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This 17th annual event will be in Building K at the school. All are invited to donate.
NCC is hoping to supply a large amount of blood for NUMC, as it is a major trauma center. During the winter months, blood supplies are generally low. The drive is part of a year long effort that includes six different blood drives at the college.
“At Nassau Community College, we take our community services responsibilities seriously,” said Dr. Arthur Friedman, Co-Chair of the NCC Blood Drive Task Force, in a press release. “We hope our efforts will help meet a substantial amount of the community's blood needs. We look forward to working in partnership with community residents in this much needed blood drive.”
To make an appointment, please call Barbara Vollmer or Professor Friedman at (516) 572-7883. You can also stop by and donate blood throughout the day. Donors must be 17 years of age and in good health. Everyone should bring photo identification. Small snacks will be provided, but it is asked that everyone eats before donating.
