Graybeards Annual Blood Drive This Sunday
The Graybeards will be holding their fifth annual Blood Drive on Sunday, September 17 from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the St. Francis de Sales gym on Beach 129 Street.
Blood drives are crucial in ensuring that hospitals maintain adequate blood supplies. This year, the Graybeards' goal is to collect 300 pints of blood and the Blood Center is sending extra personnel to help things run smoothly. Thanks to the generosity of the community, the annual "Pints for Life" event has been one of the most successful blood drives in the New York area. The Graybeards will also have entertainment, raffles and refreshments. To schedule an appointment or for more information, call the Graybeard office at (718) 634-6812 or email GiveBlood@graybeards.com.
