Congresswoman McCarthy's Annual Blood Drive

Dear Friends,

With a great need for Type O blood looming in the area, I will be hosting my annual blood drive in Garden City on Monday, March 21. Long Island Blood Services will administer the drive, in the organization’s bus in the parking lot of 400 Garden City Plaza between 10:45 a.m. and 4:45 p.m.

Blood donors save countless lives every day. Giving blood today may save the life of a child, a parent, or a grandparent tomorrow. While there’s a particular need for Type O right now, we need to help make sure all types of blood will be available to our hospitals and clinics.

Over four million Americans benefit from life-saving blood transfusions every year. I urge you to make an appointment to donate blood to help fulfill this critical need today.
