Red Cross Blood Drive, July 14

 

State Senator Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr. will be sponsoring a Blood Drive through the American Red Cross on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 from 12 noon until 5PM at his District Office located at 900 Rogers Place. A Red Cross Mobile Unit will be set up right outside of his office to welcome donors.

“We already know that especially during the summer months, blood supplies in hospitals are lower than other times of the year.  We also know that each donation can be crucial for patients undergoing surgery or patients who need transfusions,” said Senator Diaz.  Blood shortages can adversely affect babies who struggle to live in NICUs, children and adults who are undergoing surgery, car accident victims, and sickle cell suffers in crisis.

Diaz said that sponsoring blood drives with the American Red Cross makes a real difference and urged his colleagues in government to follow suit.

For further information or to sign up to be a donor, please contact Senator Diaz’s Director of Operations, Ms. Leila Martinez at (718) 991-3161.
