[ARCHIVED] Special Blood Drive at Yorktown: March 31

blood drive 240

Blood supplies are running low. To help resupply supplies, a special blood drive will take place at Yorktown Center on March 31, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. to help collect much needed donations.

The blood drive will take place in the Mobile Coach, parked at 24 Yorktown Center, in the plaza between Highland And Grace Street, behind the McDonald’s. 

Appointments are strongly encouraged and walk-ins are limited.  Safe social distancing measures will be in place to ensure donor safety. Blood donation is considered "essential activity" and exempt from the Stay at Home/Shelter In Place mandate. 

It is critically important that healthy individuals continue to donate to minimize disruptions to the blood supply and ensure blood is available for patients. If the outbreak of coronavirus expands, travel-based restrictions could potentially reduce the number of eligible donors and measures suggested to reduce exposure to other people could disrupt community blood drives and donations at centers.

Public health officials are supporting continuation of blood donation as critical to health care in our communities. Since it is the blood currently on hand that saves lives, maintaining a sufficient blood supply is essential to ensure patients in need receive optimal treatment.
