Legislator Arnold W. Drucker, New York Blood Center Host Community Blood Drive at Syosset Fire Dept

(SYOSSET, N.Y.) – In commemoration of February as American Heart Month, Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) invites residents to “give from the heart” and donate blood at the Syosset Fire Department, 50 Cold Spring Road, Syosset, N.Y. 11791 from 1 – 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 26. Each donor will receive a $10 E-Gift Card as a thank-you for rolling up their sleeves and helping to save lives.

“Earlier this month, the American Red Cross declared an emergency blood shortage and said that the number of blood donors has fallen to a 20-year low. Through this upcoming blood drive, we have an opportunity to ensure that anybody who faces a medical emergency can receive the care that they need to survive and thrive,” Legislator Drucker said. “Whether you are a routine donor, one who hasn’t given in a while or even a first-time donor, we welcome you to join us at the Syosset Fire Department on February 26 to roll up your sleeves and give the gift of life!”

Eligible donors must have an ID with a signature or a photo, weigh at least 110 pounds, have had no tattoos in the last 12 months and be ages 16-75 years of age (16-year-old donors must have parental consent. Donors over age 76 must bring a doctor’s note.) O-negative and B-negative donors are especially needed in addition to all other blood types.

Visit to make an appointment, or call Sharon at 516-790-1644. Appointments are preferred but not required; walk-ins will be taken as capacity permits.
