lood donations fall of dramatically during the summer when vacations and travel occupy more of everyone’s time. The need for blood, however, does not decline and supplies rapidly dwindle. To help correct shortages that invariably occur when summer winds blow, the Pleasantville Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting a special Summer Blood Drive at the Pleasantville Fire House, 75 Washington Ave, on Wednesday, August 31 from 2:30 pm - 8:30 pm. Since it is also difficult to organize community drives during the summer, blood donors from all towns are welcome to come to lend their help.
For information, to sign up or to volunteer, call (914) 784-4622 or send an email to JLaboy@NYBloodCenter.org. Although it is helpful to let the organizers know in advance that you plan to come, walk-ins are always accepted.
