Yesterday Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz joined the New York Blood Center for a press conference to announce the annual blood drive to be held at Borough Hall this Thursday, June 3 (10 A.M. – 4 P.M.). Every day patients need 2,000 pints of blood in the Greater New York area, yet only two percent of Brooklynites donate blood each year (compared with five percent nationwide).
One single blood donation can potentially help to save the lives of three people. If you can't make Borough Hall, call 800-933-2566 or visit www.nybloodcenter.org.
