Donating One Pint of Blood Can Save Three Lives

The Starrett City Tenants Association (SCTA) held their sixth annual blood drive with the help of the New York Blood Center on Saturday, June 11th. What a great success it was! Fourty-four people came out on this bright and sunny day to the Brooklyn Sports Club (BSC) to do their part and save lives.

Participants followed the signs and balloons to the lower level of the Brooklyn Sports Club, where they either brought their donor cards with them, or if this was the first time that they were donating they had an opportunity to sit with a representative from the New York Blood Center and have their information typed into the computer online. Now some people came to the blood drive, not even knowing their blood type. One donor was told that she will get a donor card in the mail and it will have her blood type on it, so she will know for the future.
