Opportunity Details

Donate Blood to the New York Blood Center

Volunteers are invited to donate blood at the Westchester County Center. Anyone between 16 and 76 years old is a potential blood donor. 16-year-old donors need parental permission, and 76 years or older must present a physician's note indicating they are able to give blood. This note should be obtained within a month prior to the drive. All those interested in participation MUST follow the steps below to schedule a specific time to give blood on September 11 between 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

PARKING: There is free parking for volunteers at the Westchester County Center. Let the parking attendant know you are there to volunteer for the 9/11 event. This project is a part of 9/11: Serve + Remember.
