Annual Spring Blood Drive at Nassau Community College
Thursday, March 15, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:45 p.m.

Public Invited to Participate

Garden City, NY – Nassau Community College (NCC), in conjunction with Long Island Blood Services, invites the community to donate blood during its annual spring blood drive, scheduled for Thursday, March 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room of the College Center Building.

Community support for blood donation must be sustained to assure our collective security. NCC, along with Long Island Blood Services, hopes to supply a substantial percentage of our area's ongoing need for blood products. The drive also reflects the College's six times a year effort to encourage all able individuals to participate in this vital activity. Dr. Arthur Friedman, Coordinator of the NCC Blood Drive Task Force, states, "Through our educational efforts to increase the number of blood donors, and our own contributions, the College hopes we will help meet a substantial amount of the community's blood needs. 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. 2.6028, or just stop in on Thursday, March 15, and say, "Today it's my turn to be a blood donor." The donation process takes less than an hour and refreshments will be served to participants. Nursing students are assisting in the recruitment effort for this drive as part of their service learning project.

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, we ask that donors eat before donating.
