The Red Cross wishes to extend their thanks to all who helped to make the Briarcliff Blood Buddies drive a resounding success. December is traditionally a slow month for blood donations, so our contributions are especially appreciated at this time.
Did you know that only 4% of Americans donate ALL of the blood that is used in hospitals, for the military, and for medical research? Most donors go on to become repeat donors who provide the continuous supply required for all of these very necessary applications, and that’s a big part of why the Red Cross was so thrilled that we brought in a large number of new donors.
For those who did not or could not participate at this time for any of a variety of reasons, we hope to do this again in the future, and give you another chance to contribute right here in our own backyard, but there are continuous opportunities available in Westchester and surrounding communities.
