Archangel Michael Church Blood Drive
Many, many thanks to all who responded to our urgent appeal for donors during this emergency blood shortage declared by New York Blood Center. The turn out was phenomenal!! Young and old, first time donors and repeat donors came out and helped us reach a collection total of 67 pints! Tuesday’s Blood Drive was also a milestone for our Community. During the drive, we acknowledged and celebrated our 750th pint of blood collected since we began 14 years ago. Demetris Malakidis, our milestone winner, received a basket of gift certificates and fun items from N.Y. Blood Center. A huge thank you to all who volunteered and spread the word, greeted donors, assisted in the canteen and helped make the blood drive such a rewarding experience. As a result of Tuesday’s blood drive, up to 200 people will be helped. Thank you for giving “the gift of life”!
