Nassau Community College (NCC), in conjunction with Nassau University Medical Center, will host its 23rd annual “Back to School” Blood Drive on Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. in the multipurpose room of the College Center Building (1 Education Dr., Garden City). The college invites members of the community to join its efforts and become donors at the campus site.
“Through our educational efforts to increase the number of blood donors, and our own contributions, the college hopes we will help meet a substantial level of the community’s blood needs,” said Dr. Arthur Friedman, coordinator of the NCC Blood Drive Task Force. “We look forward to working in partnership with community residents in this much needed blood drive.”
Make an appointment to give blood by calling 516-572-7401 ext. 26028, or just stop in on Sept. 13 and say, “I want to be a blood donor!” The process takes less than an hour and refreshments will be served to participants.
Blood donors must be at least 17 years old and in good health. Donors should come with some photo identification. Although small snacks will be provided, donors should eat before donating.
