SCT Annual Blood Drive

BY: PAMELA STERN

On Friday, April 23rd, the Starrett City Tenants Association (SCTA) in collaboration with the New York Blood Center held their annual blood drive in the space that was previously occupied by Radio Shack in the Spring Creek Shopping Center. Volunteers from the SCTA assisted the members from the New York Blood Center by greeting residents who came to donate their blood.

This successful event collected 50 pints of blood that will save 150 lives thanks to the efforts of the SCTA and the New York Blood Center.

“We do what we can at all events and times, to help our community remain safe, healthy, and as productive as possible during these unusually devastating times,” said Rebecca Caraballo, SCTA President.
