Residents Urged to Help Fulfill Blood Shortage by Donating on August 2nd

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilman Joseph Muscarella today announced that the Town will host a Blood Drive on Thursday, August 2nd, to help hospitals meet the ongoing and pressing need for blood donations. The Blood Drive will take place between 9am and 3pm at Town Hall North (54 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay) and between 9:30am and 3:30pm at Town Hall South (977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa).

 

“Blood supplies can easily dwindle during the summer months, so blood drives like this are critical to help hospitals meet demand and continue their life-saving mission,” said Supervisor Saladino. “I urge all those eligible to participate and help support our efforts, as blood banks need to be prepared, so that as many people as possible can be helped.”

 

To qualify as a blood donor, a person must between the ages of 17 and 75 years old (16 with parental permission and 76 or older with a doctor’s note), weigh at least 110 pounds and not have donated blood within the last 56 days. Anyone who received a tattoo within the past 12 months is ineligible to donate. It is recommended that volunteers eat well (low fat) and drink fluids in the days before the Blood Drive.

 

“We are in the midst of an emergency blood shortage and this is why people should always donate whenever they can. Donating blood is a quick, easy, and safe process, and the pint of blood you donate will never be missed from your body, as it is quickly reproduced within your body,” Councilman Muscarella added. “If you have family members or friends willing to donate, please ask them to support our effort this year, as there is no danger of contracting any diseases, and each pint of blood donated can be used to help three different people.”

 

Refreshments will be provided for all who donate blood. For additional information regarding the Town’s Blood Drive, contact Nancy Haarstick at (516) 624-6304 or visit the Town’s website at www.oysterbaytown.com.

Residents Urged to Support Town of Oyster Bay’s August 3rd Blood Drive

The Town of Oyster Bay will be holding its Blood Drive on Thursday, August 3 to help hospitals meet the ongoing need for blood donations. “We are in the midst of an emergency blood shortage and the New York Blood Center relies on the Town of Oyster Bay’s Blood Drive to meet its life-saving mission,” said Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Michele M.

Donating is not only quick and easy but it is an entirely safe process. All materials used during the process are sterile, disposable and used only once…by you. There is no danger of contracting any disease, including AIDS. The pint of blood you donate will never be missed by your body, which produces an equivalent amount in 24 hours. When broken down into component parts, one single pint of blood can be used to heal and help the bodies of three different people.”

 

Locations for the blood drives are: Town Hall South Conference Room, 977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa (9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) and Town Hall North, 54 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay (9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.). Councilwoman Johnson added that in order to qualify as a blood donor, a person must between the ages of 17 and 75 years old…16 with parental permission and 76 or older with a doctor’s note…weigh at least 110 pounds and not have donated blood within the last 56 days. Anyone who has received a tattoo within the past twelve months is ineligible to donate. It is recommended that volunteers eat well (low fat) and drink fluids in the days before the Blood Drive. The Councilwoman noted that all blood types are needed, especially O positive and O negative.

 

Refreshments will be provided for all who donate. In addition, each time someone makes a donation, they earn advantage points redeemable for a wide variety of gifts, gift cards, or other merchandise. Also, McDonalds will be offering a coupon to all donor registrants offering a free large sandwich or salad when you make any type of purchase at McDonalds.
