The need for blood donations is always high. Westchester County will once again hold a “9/11: Serve + Remember” blood drive in partnership with the New York Blood Center and Volunteer New York! as part of the county’s September 11th observance.
The drive is open to the public and will take place Friday, September 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Westchester County Center, 198 Central Park Ave., White Plains.
Anyone between the ages of 16 and 76 and weighing at least 110 pounds is a potential donor. Individuals over the age of 76 must produce a doctor’s note from shortly before the drive to be approved.
Donors are asked to register in advance by contacting Janet Lokay at JEL1@westchestergov.com or (914) 995-2127. Walk-ins will also be welcome until 3:45 p.m.
Dozens of other “9/11: Serve + Remember” projects will be taking place September 11-13. Learn more and register at www.volunteernewyork.org/service or call (914) 948-4452.
