Responding to a dire shortage of blood donations, the New York City Central Labor Council will sponsor a union blood drive next month. More details about the drive, which will take place from Oct. 7-11 at a number of locations, will appear in next month’s Allegro.
To make an appointment to donate blood call Dale Nussbaum, Community Assistance Unit Director, at the labor council, at (212) 604-9552, ext. 219. Information will also be available on the council’s web site: www.nycclc.org.
Blood donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and must not have donated blood within the last 56 days. You must bring photo identification and know your Social Security number.
