With the increase in population on the East End during summer months, there’s the usual need for increased blood donations to deal with emergencies.
Tuesday, between 2 and 8 p.m. Emergency Medical Services personnel will be conducting a blood drive at the EMS Building at 12 Manwaring Road.
Those willing to donate blood should call Judy Meringer at (631) 749-0291 or email her at [email protected] for an appointment.
Anyone in generally good health and below the age of 76 can be a donor. Those who are 76 or older will need a doctor’s note to approve donating blood.
