Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz’s office reported today that his third annual blood drive was a “big success.”
People may have noticed the big ol’ bloodmobile – a.k.a. the New York Blood Services donation van – parked on the corner of Sheepshead Bay Road and Emmons Avenue. And good thing, too, because the office said they collected 25 pints of blood, potentially saving as many as 125 lives.
We’ve said before how important donating blood is, and there’s no shortage of opportunities to do so in our neighborhood. So if you haven’t donated recently (or ever), next time you see a donation truck, stop in, roll up your sleeve, and save a life.
And for those who did stop by yesterday – good on you. Thanks for your service, and hopefully you’ll do it again when you become eligible in 56 days.
