Pelham Community Blood Drive Monday March 23
March 24, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm
TMC (The Manor Club) and Pelham Together are thrilled to sponsor a community blood drive.
Blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and not have donated blood within the last 56 days. (*Parental permission form is required for 16 year olds & is available at www.nybc.org/16.)
People age 76 or older may donate blood if they meet all criteria and present a physicians letter.
It takes about an hour to donate blood yet only 2% of the eligible population donates. There is no substitute for human blood and you cannot get an infectious disease by donating.
2 seconds: how often someone needs blood
5 days: shelf life of donated platelets
42 days: shelf life of donated red blood cells
56 days: how often you can donate
17%: number of non-donors who cite “never thought about it” as the main reason for not giving
Walk ins welcome, though we prefer that you schedule your donation through the link below or by scanning the QR code.
Please remember to eat and drink plenty of water before giving blood and bring your Donor ID or ID with name and either signature or photo.
For any questions about medical eligibility to donate (medications, travel, etc.) please contact the NY Blood Center at 1.800.933.2566.
We look forward to seeing you!
