YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!
The New York Blood Center (NYBC) has lost approximately 4500 units of blood due to cancellations Mon – Wed. They anticipate that they will continue to be forced to cancel blood drives throughout the weekend and perhaps even into next week.
Monday, 10/29, NYBC operated just 5 of 45 Sites (45 Operations - A combination of Donor Centers and Community blood drives).
Tuesday, 10/30, NYBC operated just 4 of 45 Sites (45 Operations - A combination of Donor Centers and Community blood drives).
Wednesday 10/31, NYBC are operating just 10 of 45 Sites.
NYBC hopes to be at 50% of capacity Thursday and perhaps 75% by Friday and the weekend.
In all, NYBC will likely have lost 6000 or more donations, and types O-, B- and platelets are in extremely short supply.
Anything you can do to help would be really appreciated.
