Let Us Take Your Blood!
Dracula isn't the only one who wants your blood on Halloween...and Superheroes aren't the only ones who can save people. Farmingdale State and Long Island Blood Services is sponsoring a community blood drive on Tuesday, October 21, 2006 from 10:30am-5:30pm on the Farmingdale campus in Roosevelt Hall, Multi-Purpose Room.
Long Island hospitals require almost 800 pints of blood per day. With a single donation, a person can help up to four people. One in three people will need blood sometime during his/her lifetime.
Donors must be 16-75, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in general good health. At the time of donation, donors must have either photo or signed identification and know their social security number.
