New York’s blood supply has never been lower, and New York Blood Center (NYBC) is urgently calling for donors. There has been a significant decline in regular blood donors, and the region’s supply has reached critically low levels. In order to maintain a safe blood supply, a seven-day inventory of all blood types must be continually replenished. Right now, reserves are below that minimum.

BMCC will be holding a blood drive on the following Wednesdays:

7/8, 7/15, 7/29, 8/5, 8/12 or 8/18

It only takes one hour to donate, and a single donation can be used to save multiple lives. Those in need include: cancer patients, accident, burn, or trauma victims, newborn babies and their mothers, transplant recipients, surgery patients, chronically transfused patients suffering from sickle cell disease and many more.

Refreshments will be available after you have donated blood.

Please sign up to donate blood.
