(BALDWIN, N.Y.) - Roll up your sleeves and help save lives on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 with Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé (D - Freeport) and the Coral House by donating blood from 1 - 7 p.m. at the Coral House, 70 Milburn Ave., Baldwin.
“In recent months, a spirit of generosity and compassion has shined brightly in our community. As we continue to emerge from the hardest days of the COVID-19 pandemic, I hope that we will band together once again to meet this urgent appeal for blood donors,” Legislator Mulé said. “I’m delighted to partner with the Coral House in support of New York Blood Services’ life-saving work in Nassau County and throughout our region.”
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.
In compliance with COVID-19 prevention directives, donors must wear a face mask or covering; have their temperature taken before donating; and must be 14 days symptom-free if they have recovered from COVID-19. Individuals that are currently observing self-quarantine restrictions or that have tested positive for COVID-19 or experienced symptoms in the last 14 days are not eligible to donate at this time.
