Blood Drive At St.John's Hospital 2/7
A blood drive will be held on Thursday, February 7, from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at St. John's Hospital Boardroom. The hospital urges everyone to donate. The donations will have an immediate life-saving impact and help hospitals provide vital patient care. A single donation may be separated into red cells, platelets, and plasma to help more than one person.
To donate you must be at least 17, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and be in good health. People older than 75 years of age may donate blood if they meet all donor criteria and present a physician's letter giving permission. Donors are encouraged to eat during regular mealtimes and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating. For information about the drive, contact St. John's Episcopal Hospital at 718-869-7326 or 718-869-7329.
